Bulk-Buying Stamps

Recommended Posts

Not realy what the article's about but I'll be buying my Christmas stamps next week!

Also is "vulnerable" the most twisted word in the dictionary these days? I frequently see this applied to heroin addicts and violent ex-cons who are a danger to other people.

Royal Mail came under fire yesterday over a plan to sell cheaper stamps to five million customers on benefits.

Since the Penny Black was introduced in 1840, the company has delivered a letter anywhere from the Scottish highlands to the Cornish coast for a uniform price.

But embattled boss Moya Greene said Royal Mail planned to break with tradition and make cheaper stamps available for ‘the most vulnerable members of society’ this Christmas.

They will be able to buy stamps at 2011 prices – 46p for first-class and 36p for second-class – while everybody else will be hit by price hikes from April.
