Re: Post office going on strike for 5 days

A second class stamp is now 55p which is 11 bob in old money! When I first started work in the 1960's a 2nd class stamp was 2d. Cleaver how they have the stamps printed with either lst or 2nd class on them. This is to fool the public about the actual price, and it does !!

Re: Post office going on strike for 5 days

The cost usually goes up in April each year. But any stamps that have 2nd or 1st class printed on them can still be used after any such increase.

When I was at work, most of our mail went out second class. So in February or March each year, my boss used to buy about ten dozen stamps. I remember one year when the rise was quite substantial, he calculated and bought enough second class stamps to last almost for a year!

I have to say, that with email, I post very few items now. I bought three books of stamps (large variety) about five years ago. I still have just over fifty of these left.

Will have to see next year how much the increase is and will replenish my "stock".

Re: Post office going on strike for 5 days

The post office own virtually nothing of the products they sell, I am not saying that is good or bad but it puts them in a vulnerable position.

Financial products are the Bank of Ireland, border checking and passports are government and postage stamps are owned by royal mail. Phone and broadband are talk talk.

The only thing they own are Postal orders (does anyone still use them?)

Re: Post office going on strike for 5 days

Queues at our local PO were down the street this morning, two counters open, pension day, took half an hour to post a couple of cards which couldn`t be done via the internet. Won`t bother next year.

Re: Post office going on strike for 5 days

Thanks for that Kanga. Will remember that when I next buy lots i.e. for Christmas cards. Too late this year.
