Under the terms of a new three year Royal Mail pay deal, which has been criticised for allowing postmen to get paid more for working less, letters and parcels will be delivered one hour later - 3pm in towns and cities and 4pm in the countryside.
So they get more cash, cash that we pay and in return we get a poorer service. Yeah that sounds great.
Separately, householders could also be deluged by a blizzard of junk mail after the two sides agreed plans to expand the amount of junk mail which postmen can deliver.
No come on, seriously they have to be having a laugh. We get the mail late, no doubt the costs of sending mail will go up to cover this and now we get even more crap to throw straight in the bin.
It was just the other day that these same postal workers-and I use the word very loosely - were complaining about the dangers of dogs whilst doing their rounds.
Postal unions welcomed the move as “long overdue”.
“Thousands of our members are attacked at work every year,” said Billy Hayes, general secretary of the CWU.
Thousands of your members are attacked every year? Sniff I can feel myself filling up you self indulgent cunt. Oh dear, well on the money we pay for the poor service you could afford to pay someone else to do the actual work bit of the job.
Anyone know if I can get a Japanese tosa or maybe a fila brasileiros and a postal uniform; then its time to train the fuckers to attack the indolent postal workers on site?
