:roll: :roll: If you think the Posties, are doing such a bad job, at delivering a Universal Guarentee service. Just wait till the Tories and Liberals Privatise the Royal Mail, and link up with TNT and Deutsche post. Stand by for 3 and 5 day delivery cycle.. and no more universal guarantee, unless you are prepared to pay, shed loads for it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-11258649
The service is generally pretty good, but if I had to deliver my international on the back of a three-legged Llama I would do it in a flash in exchange for watching Royal Mail staff fall in to their road-side picket fires.
