WE have had a postal service
here since 1660 and until the late 1990s the Royal Mail was making money – so, not broken, why fix it?
Ah, but then the EU got involved and – as with everything it touches – it quickly goes tits up.
EU Postal Services Directives robbed the Royal Mail of its most profitable services and forced it to open up to competition.
Next time the postman comes, look at your mail – the letter or parcel will have UK Mail, TNT (Dutch) or DHL (German) written large. This is the result of EU meddling.
So we now have to privatise Royal Mail. The EU prevents our government giving state aid, so jobs will no doubt be lost.
So you know who to thank: thank EU.
THE Railway Children
has been a family favourite for over 40 years.
Last week some sad case complained to the BBC saying it should not be shown because it encourages children to play on railways. What next? Ban
Harry Potter or Superman because it encourages kids to attempt to fly?
Or Spiderman because it encourages kids to climb?
I’ve only got one thing to say to whoever complained: get yourself a life!
