It is oh so clever to mock the Royal Mail—as those who have dubbed it "snail mail" do—as if the decline in service had nothing to do with the loss of its monopoly position, the advent of competition and indeed the mockers’ own actions.
Royal Mail does not deserve the railway’s support, its former friend having deserted stations in favour of motorway junctions and airports. But the connection will be made again in time; trains will carry letters and parcels; railwaymen and posties will rub shoulders on platforms. Meantime, this railway maintains its principled support, as much as anything because of the value of the postal service in rural areas, for Royal Mail provides much good employment and the postman is more than just his deliveries.
Who with any concern for humanity would want to undermine this by using the handiwork of Satan instead of an envelope?
