There's Been Another Postal Strike. Like We Can Tell

postbox_13Sep09.jpg Apparently there was another postal strike on Friday, as CWU members walked out again over Royal Mail "modernisation" which, according to who you listen to, is either much-needed change or job and pay cuts. But our first thought was, isn't it about time we stopped this pretence that what's happening is a series of discrete strikes? There's now a sorting and delivery backlog of 20 million items in London - most of them ours, we reckon - and the near-permanent delays surely mean we're just experiencing one, long, tedious strike. Take a look at action scheduled for next week, if you think there's any sodding point. (Image / JudyGr)
