The people who'd scream for such a thing to happen here would also be the first ones to scream bloody murder when FedEx or UPS wants $44.50 to deliver a letter from the screamer's home in Skeeter Holler to his cousin what for out there by Coon Tick Lake.

Things just haven't been the same since the clacks started running.

I hear the British Post is very efficient.

Like British Telecom?  Let's hope not for the sake of the colonials.

Benjamin Franklin would be rolling in his grave if privatization happened to the USPS... other than the other crap that this generations' Republicans have been doing or try to do, that got him to roll in his grave at other moments in time.

The article says that this is for the Royal Mail, which was separated from the Post Office. Can a British farker (or a farker who knows the system) explain what the difference is?

Mr. Coffee Nerves: home in Skeeter Holler to his cousin what for out there by Coon Tick Lake.


Excuse me Miss, but I speak Hick...

It's gotten to the point that you can't go visit his grave anymore. The pennies keep flying off at sub-light speed from how fast he's spinning.

Suddenly the Republican Herpy Derp gets so bad that Republicans look at Franklin spinning even faster and say, "See, he just broke the light barrier, that makes Einstein wrong and that makes all science questionable! That means that creation is the truth, evolution a myth, and Sarah Palin the president of the US; so get ready for the Jesus brigade because our future theocracy is coming to a town near you!"

/I really hope Republicans don't think like that

The Royal Mail is the organisation that collects sorts and delivers the post. The Post Office is a company that runs shops (or concessions in other shops called sub-post offices) that sells stamps, can collect post and provides other services. The Post Office was the retail arm of the Royal Mail until it was sold off and is still intertwined.

It is. It's also not privatized. From my experience of having eBay wins shipped from the US the US postal system is also very efficient.
