Want to send a letter in the UK, well fork up, you’ve just been scammed by the Royal Mail who have increased their postage costs by over 80%. Run a business? Well, you’re f*cked, especially if you sell eCommerce items. Want to expand your business abroad? Well you’re fucked there as well, with Europe Airmail prices now up 82% from £1.49 to £2.70.
Anti-Business Secretary, Vince Cable has applauded the new move by Royal Mail as has Chancellor George Osborne.
“This is all great for the recovery. It’s all part of the plan. We even intend to put VAT on hot food. We’re not f*cking kidding here,” Osborne told the BBC.
Royal Mail pensions are assured for now as are the fat cat salaries of the bosses who just ordered the massive price hike.
Hopefully when the Royal Mail is privatised next year, things may change for the better and bring it into the 21st century.
