The Royal Mail are complaining that due to increased competition, profits for the half year. I repeat half year, are only £218million… I repeat £218 million
It seems that other companies can do the same job (cherry pick) for less and big companies like Amazon are planning there own delivery service.
This may be in part due to the fact that the cost of sending packages is now so expensive and difficult to work out, and that by using other companies, deliveries actually arrive.
The solution according to Royal Mail is to put up prices, especially in areas where it may be difficult to deliver, such as England , Scotland , Wales and N.Ireland
As a small business I tend to find that if you put up prices and give a worse service you tend to lose customers not gain them…but what do I know?
P.S The Loony Party would re-nationalise the Royal Mail so that the only shareholders would be the public, and all the profits (the measly £218m every 6months) would be reinvested in a good cheap service. We will also bring out a stamp with a silhouette of our glorious leader wearing his white suit, on it.

The Loony party would stop all by-elections being held 9 months before a general election.
The cost of a by election is estimated at around £240,000. Mark Reckless who is sanding for UKIP could have waited a mere 7 months until the next election to defect. However as part of the plan to upset the political system and gain unwarranted publicity for UKip, he decided to defect now…Reckless by name, and reckless by nature. Ukip are quick to complain of the financial waste caused by the European Parliament, but seem quite happy to waste money from the U.K Government, (twice this year) which I point out is your tax money. When your services are being cut due to lack of money think about this total waste which could have funded something worthwhile. Dont waste your vote (The by-election is going to happen anyway). Show them your discontent with the political system, by voting for the Loony Party. You know this makes sense.
The Loony party is proud to be part of the campaign led by the Sunday Mirror to recognise and recompense for the survivors of horrific 1950s nuclear bomb tests.

Its notable that neither UKIP, Respect or the Conservative Party responded to join this campaign. Ukip apparently havent got a spokesperson who can talk about an issue unless Mr Farage Ok’s it, The Conservatives dont want to get involved as they may have to admit liability and foot the bill.
The Party Conference next year Fri 25th-Sat 26th Sept 2015, is to be held in Blackpool. Uncle Toms Cabin, a fine music venue on Blackpools North Shore, 44-46 Queens Promenade, FY2 9RW. This venue is not a hotel so no accommodation is available unfortunately, but, I have arranged with one of our party members Lord Guilderoy, of the ‘New Guilderoy Hotel’ on Holmfield Road, only 750 yds away for a £25 pound
a night stay to include breakfast. When he is full, he knows the guest houses either side of him and can fix us up in there! Uncle Toms is about half a mile from the tower and Town Centre, bus and tram stops right outside. I have also arranged with ‘Jo’ the landlady for motor home and tent camping on the premises.
If you wish to make your own arrangements all very well, lots of places on the doorstep in Northumberland Road, Knowle Avenue and Holmfield Road, but stay in the Cabin area, that’s the name of the tram stop. Best to find the venue first then make your mind up!
Vince Ripper and his Rock ‘n’ Roll Horror show will be on both nights, already booked, to intersperse with whatever other entertainment may be on. The venue will provide a suitable band on the Friday, free of charge.
We have also at our disposal a Double Decker open top bus, to perambulate along the promenade on, with various banners and loud hailers, already confirmed.
I would like to thank Vince Cornwall, Tony Davies and Simon Connelly, all Party Members, for helping to make this happen, and last but not least, the lovely ‘Jo’ of the Cabin for allowing it to happen.
Come and make a week of it, I will, and your more than welcome to come and join me!
The Howling ‘Laud’
New Guilderoy Phone no: 01253 351 547 – FY2 9RU – mention the Loony Party when booking.
We can confirm that the Loony party was not notified of the E.U budget demand of £1.7bn before George Osborne or David Cameron.
