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.
