At the Bar - BRIAN TRUEMAN 4: It's Just a Habit

First the arguments then your chance to join the debate. The Last Post?
Despite the improvement in communications, buoyant traffic and a modest measure of automation, Britain has a postal service that is not only more expensive but less reliable and slower than in the day of the steam train and bicycle.
As the postal service confronts suggestions that it should be hived off from the more profitable tele-communications business or even that it should be doled out piece-meal to private enterprise, Brass Tacks speaks to the men who work in and manage the postal business. The questions that are being asked are: can the public expect anything better than a further decline in service at an ever-increasing price, and moreover, will we in ten years' time have a postal service at all?
