The cat is finally out of the bag. It’s long been evident that there was something rotten in the state of the Post Office, but now trades unions have confirmed: no permanent staff taken on there for two decades, and a lack of staff meaning three-quarters of mail cannot be delivered.
Posties’ personal failures aside — such as last year’s alleged thefts and the postman more than two decades ago who chucked letters down a well because he was too lazy to deliver them — it’s a disgraceful indictment of official neglect.
Yet what a short-sighted one. An efficient postal service not only keeps communications, and thus trade and commerce flowing, but helps instil a general feelgood sense of a country functioning well.
