Postal Order


Another demonstration today. The Old Market Square is getting quite the place for demos. Not quite Tienanmen Square, although there was a tank there the other year. Today's protest was about the proposed privatisation of the Royal Mail. So many post offices have closed over the last few years. This has had a devastating effect on some communities, as not only did people buy the usual stamps etc, but they also doubled as a grocery store and a meeting place. Another little bit of England gone forever.
