Postal deliveries on Saturdays are under threat because the Royal Mail could be forced to axe up to 30,000 jobs in a cost-cutting drive.

i agree with slashing the costs at the top... stop paying the fat cats so bloody much... and start letting the potsies deliver mail properly... every time they come up with cost sutting ideas designed to save thousands/millions it only means we get our mail later and later and the poor posties have a lot more houses added onto their already heavy bags making them later n later...

 my brother n brother in law have been posties for 15 years and over 25 years i hear about a lot of what goes on from them both..one used to be union rep but found it to be a useless and thankless task...
 my post is rarely here by 2 30,,,sometimes even later on the odd occasion.... mind you doesnt help when i see her in high street gassing to shop assistants before she gets anwhere near my house
