His principal issue is the Royal Mail strike although comments have largely shifted to the BBC/BNP spectacular - enough!
Now, the US postal services must be facing similar challenges with technology change yet operate at a profit.
Google shows that privitis/zation of the US Mail has been discussed but does not seem to be a high priority.
There is an EU dimension to our problems.
"The objective of the EU postal policy is to accomplish the Single Market for postal services and ensure a high quality universal postal service as part of the Lisbon Agenda."
"Postal Directive (Directive 97/67/EC as amended by Directive 2002/39/EC) and as amended by Directive 2008/06/EC)."
So we can see yet another benefit of continued EU membership!
