If a single letter arrives at our address for someone who no longer lives here what do I do?
Found 14th Aug 2015
I popped in to the post office and being a good citizen said a letter had arrived to us addressed to a previous owner from 23 years ago. They said I could pay for a stamp because the postage has been used up... I said "didn't the inland letter post scheme allow this simple redirection?" (My mum said 24 hours to put it back in the system and whoosh)? "No" said mohammed (the clerk not the prophet) because we are a business gleefully and if they let a caring citizen like you do it then everyone would do it... So I asked "what happens I drop it in the post with the new address" then "then the recipient pays for the stamp PLUS £1 administration fee". Kerching!... Postman Pat should be ashamed... And the Royal Mail wants to be protected from competition, bring it on...
