Postal strike has little effect
Sunday, 01 November 2009 21:39

Let's call a spade a spade - a strike is a strike whether you call it 'industrial action' or not.

Referring to is as industrial action is spin, and we all know who was the master of that!

Anecdotal evidence suggests that in many areas the mail is getting delivered earlier and quicker than usual. What this tells you about the regular postmen (no PC-ness here) is that we should all be questioning the 'postie' description that striking postmen are using to describe themselves.

Clearly they want to be seen as the local friendly 'postie' dedicated to bring us our mail come rain or shine. In fact they seem to be a militant lot, determined to prevent progress and out to get as much out of the system as they can.

We need someone to bring a bit of common sense and reality to the discussion.
