Royal Mail Workers at the Skelmersdale Depot have just released the following Statement re: delivering the S*n next week

next Thursday & Friday the S*n plan to send out through royal mail 22million copies of a world cup edition of the sun

Liverpool,Warrington and some CH postcodes are exempt from this,however as it stands the staff in Skelmersdale are being told we will have to deliver them

With the backing of the CWU this morning we informed them that if any copies of the sun cross the gates we will walk out

We've been urging people today to voice their concerns about this by ringing customer services

Any support would be greatly appreciated,lets stop 60,000 copies of that sh**e going out

Customer services number is 03457740740,get this around twitter ,facebook etc

DONT BUY THE SUN

Would cost them a lot of money to post out 22 million copies wouldn't it.

I think people make up these stories to give someone a chance to moan about The Sun.

Whatever your feelings on the Sun, Royal Mail workers are paid to deliver mail, not make value judgements based on its contents.

Who would be happy if their local postie started deciding what mail got delivered based on his or her own opinions?

A road in Bidston has had no mail delivered for three weeks because of a dog loose in the neighbourhood. The only letter to be delivered was to inform the "customers" of the situation. ( Roger phillips phone in yesterday)A large spider and angry aggressive pensioners are other excuses for no service.Interfering with mail was a criminal offence and I hope still is.I will choose to fire the mail in the bin if I choose to do so.When a postie makes a moral choice on my behalf I will know for definite this country is an asylum without walls.

I agree fully.

Whatever your personal view of the "S*n" happens to be, it is not your choice to decide whether or not it is delivered to the public.
Surely it's thier choice whether to read it or not?
Personally if I get a copy it will be straight in the bin without being looked at but that's my choice and my right to make that choice.
Posties can not make a moral decision over what is delivered to people via a Paid Service - if they knew what was in a lot of packages, I bet they'd have a shock.

I love these people who have a hatred of The Sun newspaper, although it is nothing more than a comic for the masses it's owner is Rupert Murdoch...also owner of Sky Tv. Does this mean all these Sun "boycotters" refuse to pay him x amount a month to watch Liverpool play on Sky Sports, watch boxing and heaven forbid if they know what rugby and cricket is those too?? I fear not.

Empty gestures! Let the postmen do what they are paid for.

If the Postman is so concerned as to what he posts through my letterbox, I wish he'd intervene on my behalf and stop delivering all that junk mail I get every week. Even though I have a sticker on my letterbox flap saying NO junk mail, I still get the stuff.
Personally I suspect they're complaining about the weight of all those (S*n???) SUN newspapers they'll have to carry around. It's a bit like the bin men not emptying bins that are too full. It's not like they have to lift them anymore is it?
Don't get me started on the bin men!
