WE have had a postal ser­vice

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

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!
