“Grumble Post” 1

It is not long ago – 4th October 2011 – I was nostalgically writing about “The Penny Post”.  No question, this was a grumbling blog lamenting the fact that things are not as good as they used to be in the past:-

  • The post doesn’t arrive now till lunchtime
  • A letter ANYTHING bigger than a postage stamp costs more
  • ALL letters cost more – one penny in my imagination, thrupence in my childhood, 19p in 2000 (4 bob), 36p today (7 shillings and tuppence in real money for second class)
  • Nearly 10 bob for first class!

    Maybe it will soon be a guiena a letter?? It will be like transporting a bloodstock horse: You bid for your mode of transport for your communication.
