    They need their wages to stay inline with London house prices (ie. go up 25% pa).
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    The postal service in London is so bad I doubt anyone will notice.
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    Is there any point in a postal service these days, everything useful can be send/processed over the internet.

    When was the last time you received a letter in the post that was:-

    A. Useful
    and
    B. Could not have been transmitted electronically??


    There are items like ebay purchases etc, but these are generally delivered by couriers who provide a better service at lower cost than the Royal Mail.

    I have to agree with the other posts, the mail service is so bad in London going on strike will not degrade the service any further.
