A government Report has confirmed what everybody already knew. The 'liberalisation' of the postal service has benefited big business, but not ordinary people. This is no surprise. The Post Office works on a 'one price goes everywhere' principle. The monopoly on letters enables the huge volume of business to business mail from and to central London head offices to in effect subsidise highland crofters and little old ladies who live on remote Scottish islands keeping in touch with their loved ones. Does anyone have a problem with that?
