Royal Mail - fit for purpose?

What a great time of year to be thinking about the future of the Royal Mail. Excluding Daily Mail readers most people must be thinking its due a kick into touch. There was a time (pre email) when getting your post at home in the morning before work was a benefit. But for the last decade or so urgent means online. So why are the Posties busting a gut trying deliver when most of the population are out at work (or robbing). Society has moved on some what. If the Royal Mail really intends to survive it needs to match the needs of its customers. Outside of bills the post is for parcels. Forget mornings, let the posties have a lie-in and focus on the evenings when people are actually at home able to except parcels. Rather than spending all Saturday queuning at the sorting office. rant rant rant
