Hurray for the postmen
Sunday, 18 October 2009
I don’t normally post links to my Observer column on the blog - usually it just goes up on the “writing” page - but this week, for once, my column isn’t just a bunch of jokes but something I really believe. People seem angry with postmen for striking and they’re not looking at the bigger picture. Postmen/women are, generally, very good & hardworking people. I never met one I didn’t like. Currently, they are desperately unhappy and scared about their working conditions. They’re right to be. And the threats they are facing are bad for us all. It’s misguided to blame the postmen, we should be on their side.
If you read this and feel you agree with it, do consider stopping by to show your support at the local sorting office this week.
