I have called them re overdue parcels and letters and they refuse to say when the backlog will be cleared or why it built up and it appears to be still building up. This sorting office is a disgrace, we all know it, yet nothing is ever done.

Yes, more Christmas cards today - including 2 first class - all posted mid-December.

I already complained to roayl mail and it's the worst website in the world to work out how to complain, they really don't welcome complaints.

I'm receiving magazines from early December, I'm just going to cancel as it's not worth paying for them.

I've had to cancel numerous papers, because I'd get them so late.

Come on Simon - or his office spokesperson - what are you doing about this?

My daughter had a years subscription to 'Heat' magazine as a Xmas pres from a friend. It's a weekly magazine, (she tells me,) and the first one should have arrived the Tuesday before Xmas. she's still waiting for it. Hard to reconcile that with my earlier post. Inconsistency indeed.

Three letters today! That's it!

Is it possible to go and request one's post at the sorting office?

There used to be a facility called 'Poste Restante,' where you could arrange to have your mail held at the most convenient sorting office for your collection. It was designed for people travelling away from home and having no access to imprtant items delivered to their home address. Whether this facility remains I don't know. Worth looking into perhaps.

Hooray! My daughter's magazine has just arrived......And only three weeks late.
