Rip-off stamp prices! #679544

Royal Mail are putting the prices up next month on stamps.

First Class stamps will be 60p and Second Class 50p.

For those who can remember when we had a decent postal system, that is 12/0d and 10/0p respectively.

Ten bob for a second class stamp - you've GOT to be joking!!!

No Christmas cards from me this year then. I will be putting "Christmas Greetings to All" in the December edition of the Mytholmroyd and Todmorden Sewage Works Enthusiast Magazine instead !

Royal Mail is being privatised next (?) year. THEN watch the prices leap up even more ! oldman

Havent they capped the 2nd class at 55p?
We send loads of invoices and statements from the business, told the missus to look at E mailing them now and if not might invest in a Franking Machine. The postal service round here in Bromborough is abysmal, weve complained so many times and all they say is that there is too much for the one guy to deliver!!!!
What p*sses me off is that when they sent TWO guys out in a van, they park outside ours (caus we are in the middle) and both walk in opposite directions up and down the other side of the road and do us LAST!!!!! No wonder no one uses their service, serves them right!!!

I hardly ever post anything, so for me it is not a problem, but when my local Pub informed me today that the beer was going up by 5 pence a pint (or 1 shilling to us old farts) I replied that my first PINT only cost a shilling! I may give up drinking!!!

Its a 30% rise in first class so if you use the post a lot then it will matter- obviously you are just a normal user but in business this is a huge issue. I suppose it will make everyone turn more to scanning and emailing.
But yes you are correct it only seems like a few pennies.

To an average user it is but to business as chopper said its alot.

I spend 10,000 a year to royal mails postal services and now with the increase it will add an extra 3,000 to the total.

I am sure I am just small fish compared to huge companies however its still alot

Very true, its the bigwigs raping it before it goes private. Remember folks we are all slaves to huge corperations and everything is expendable, including the queens own mail service.


Uncertainty or not knowing causes depression, Im happy because I know I'm going to die one day!
