THE MAIL OF THE SPECIES
The Coalition in Britain - that unlovely beast - is selling off (privatising) The Royal Mail. This is a tragedy, and one that Eyewear the blog opposes whole-heartedly. The postmen and postwomen of the UK are a lifeline, and a wonderful friendly presence in an otherwise increasingly atomised world. My own postman calls me "bruvver" which is very good of him. His cheery smile is part of my day. I shudder to think what will replace these people. Meanwhile, Eyewear encourages readers to send in poems they have written, that somehow refer to Royal Mail.
