Does anyone WANT to compete with them, I would say no. I have never heard of a company that would like to compete with RM under the same terms and condition as RM trade under. The rest of the industry want to cherry pick their customers and locations so I say to hell with 'em.Russell_Piper said:The Royal Mail has a government imposed monopoly.
Nobody else are allowed by law to compete with them.
This is my argument. There is a law which says that no other courier company can charge less than £1 for its service. So Royal Mail can do whatever they want and we have to pay because it has no competitors at this level.PoochJD said:And, as others have said, see where else you can get service whereby your parcel will be sent relatively quickly at a relatively low price. I'd rather use someone like the Royal Mail than any number of new, fly-by-night companies who think they will ever beat the RM at their own game!
