While I accept that some increase is reasonable, if one looks further than the basic 1st & 2nd class they are seriously making a meal of it.
2nd class 100gm Pkt will now cost £2.20 as opposed to £1.33
100gm small pkt to europe will now cost £2.70 as opposed to £1.49
etc etc. Let us get behind a campaign to force some ammendments to this rip off.
What I dont understand is that these measures only serve to make ordinary people look for alternatives. For example from 30th April I will be able to send a 1kg packet for 30p less than th PO cost, and that is collected from my door. Many people like me rely on the Postal service to make ends meet via ebay etc. Just another nail in my coffin if it goes ahead
