The Royal Mail is constantly battling against all those modern private companies who want a slice of its action. In theory I’m all in favour of some kind of monopoly on the universal delivery of post in the UK. Just as it makes sense to me that one company should run a rail network, it seems simplest to have the Royal Mail run the mail. But every time the post(wo)man pops a bunch of junk through our letterbox I want to see the company die a little.
It’s not the usual junk mail, like credit card offers or spurious lottery prizes, which we avoid entirely via the
I generally shove them in the nearest Royal Mail post box, which gets me an inkling of satisfaction, but any better ideas for retaliation would be welcome.
