THE CHECK’S IN THE MAIL.  NO IS ISN’T.  IT’S IN THE GUTTER AS POSTAL STRIKE WORSENS.

I had not intended to run another strike story first thing in the morning but here we are. 
America take note. Please!
This may be a boring story for you but there surely is a lesson here.  And it’s very well expressed by Lyndon so TAKE HEED AMERICA.

Once they get their foot in the door the commies are very difficult to get out. You end up with “Conservatives” like you have in England, who are too scared to impose real conservative values because so many of the population are sucking at the government tit.

Your post is in the gutter: Strike-hit Post Office managers sort mail on the pavement

Sacks of letters and parcels have been left lying in the gutter after Royal Mail chiefs secretly drafted in managers in a desperate attempt to clear a huge backlog of mail caused by postal strikes.

In a scene that evokes memories of the ‘winter of discontent’ 30 years ago – when Left-wing strikers brought the nation to a virtual standstill – a public service is yet again being reduced to chaos by militants determined to disrupt everyday life.

This was Worple Road, Wimbledon, South-West London, yesterday as volunteer postal managers – among thousands across the country – were forced to offload mail into the road because the Royal Mail delivery office 100 yards away had been shut down after a walkout by postal staff.

Working next to suburban flats and offices, the managers, wearing orange reflective vests, removed mail on to the pavement from the vans and 6ft-high steel sorting trolleys before delivering it to local addresses.

The scene was captured on a mobile phone camera by Brian Narborough, of nearby Raynes Park.

The 60-year-old retired golf club steward said last night: ‘As I drove past, I could hardly believe what I was seeing. These postal people were throwing the mailbags over their shoulders and into the street from the vans. It’s not what you expect in the middle of a suburban street at a weekend.

‘It’s hardly secure, either. I thought the idea of the mail was that it was delivered to you safely. No wonder it’s late arriving.

‘It really took me by surprise to see all that post in the street. It certainly explains why I’ve been waiting so long for my post when it’s strewn all over the place like that at 11 in the morning.

The postal service around here has been terrible for a couple of weeks now. We had no post at all some days last week. It is just awful that it has come to this.’

The Wimbledon delivery office in Cranbrook Road was one of 14 Royal Mail depots around Britain yesterday where managers were being used as strike-busters.
Staff sort the piles of mail in the street for delivery

There are more than 14,000 delivery and sorting offices throughout the country, delivering over 75million letters and parcels a day.

Royal Mail bosses insist that more than 90 per cent of mail is being delivered. But a series of one-day strikes by 20,000 members of the Communication Workers Union – aimed at causing maximum disruption with minimal loss of pay – have brought chaos to the postal system in the past fortnight.

This will hugely embarrass Gordon Brown, who on Tuesday will tell the TUC conference in Liverpool that Government and leadership are about making choices ‘in the best interests of the country’. He will also admit that Britain’s road towards recovery is ‘still fragile and not automatic’.

The union claims that its series of rolling walkouts has paralysed parts of the network, causing a backlog of 20million items in London, with some families not receiving their post for ten days.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
