Parcel rip-off must stop, post-haste
It’s hugely frustrating that folk in some parts of Scotland are still being ripped off by firms when it comes to having parcels delivered.
After all, it’s not as if these customers live in caves, cut off from the outside world with no road or rail links.
No they will probably live in a semidetached house in a suburban street that, wait for it, might even be connected to the internet. (How do the firms involved think folk order their wares?)
So there’s no reason at all why they should be forced to cough up extra for a delivery.
You would imagine some parts of London would pose bigger delivery problems with congestion charging and traffic-clogged roads.
So do Londoners have to stump up more? Not a chance.
