Royal Mail cancels Christmas and cocks up postal votes

Don't expect a cheery grin from Postman Pat - he's really pissed off

Don’t expect a cheery grin from Postman Pat – he’s really pissed off

The Royal Mail workers lost the right to strike in a High Court ruling. However, the UK could still be in for a period of postal disruption.

We met one shop steward who did not want to be named around the back of a sorting office in Bradford he did not want us to name. Oops.

He told us: “If the bosses want to play dirty, so can we. Do you know how many letters and parcels go missing every month?

“Thought not. It’s only about half a million which is very low percentage considering as how we deliver millions every day. I’m personally surprised it’s not more, the way the lads chuck them about.

“But I suspect the number of missing letters will rise dramatically over the next few weeks, and I wouldn’t bother sending any cards this Christmas.

“I mean, you can’t blame the lads for being a bit upset with their minds not on their jobs, can you?

“The postal vote is looking dodgy, too. Those Tory strongholds with high numbers of postal voters might be in for a swing.

“I mean, they’re large letters, they are, and need very careful handling and what with the cold weather and all, I’d not be surprised if some of them slipped through icy fingers. And into a brazier or some other fiery system as our postmen and women try to keep warm.

“I really don’t think Boris is going to win this one.”
