Word reaches me (though how reliable – not sure) that our cynical government, scared to announce the result of the consultation into Post Office closures in London prior to the elections, will announce this coming week that only seven Post Offices in London will not be closed. So – nearly all our campaigning and desperate pleas will have basically fallen on deaf ears if this is true.
Having watched both Gordon Brown and Harriet Harman today on the TV saying that they have learned lessons and are listening to the people – I would say if the Post Offices rumour proves to be true – then no, they aren’t listening. If they were really listening to the people they would stop this closure policy dead in its tracks. We’ll see!
