Post apocalypse

The cost of a stamp might be going up by over 50% next April according to the Telegraph. This would take second-class from 36p to 55p. I am appalled. I sometimes feel that Royal Mail is consciously trying to drive us into the arms of new technology. They tell us how much money they’re making at the same time as losing our letters, raising their prices, and charging us extra if the envelope’s too big. Is it surprising that we’re turning our backs on this inefficient and money-grabbing institution? As you know, I was a little reluctant to embrace the world of email, texting and Twitter. But now I can see the advantages. By taking the ‘social media’ route, I won’t have to take out a bank loan to buy a book of stamps.
