Price of post

I HAVE just been charged £7.80 at Warrington Post Office to send a picture book to my two-year-old grandchild.

The cost of a large padded envelope is £2.20. The small parcel weight was 1.062kg. Cost of second class post to Rotherham £5.60, total cost £7.80.

Now I know why at the recent Post Office privatisation sell-off, the share value doubled overnight.

I post a medium sized parcel to my friend in Scotland on her birthday every year. It's not very heavy. Last year it was £2 something first class and this year it was £5.20 SECOND CLASS! Definitely a huge rip-off. Disgusting !
