Bloody Cards

Five million people will be able to buy cut-price stamps to protect them from steep rises in the cost of sending a letter, the post office has disclosed.

The price of second class stamps is expected to increase from 36p to as much as 55p in April, and then rise by inflation every year for seven years.  The price of a first class stamp (currently 46p) will no longer be capped by the regulator. 

In an attempt to avoid a back lash at these rises, stamp prices will be frozen for some pensioners and benefit claimants to help them with the cost of sending Christmas cards this year.  The deal will be limited to a few weeks in December and the post office said customers would be rationed to prevent abuse of the scheme.

Fuck 'em and use emails instead.  Simple.
