At 5 p.m. on Wednesday 16th February I attempted to post a letter in the large pillar box outside Marks & Spencer in Slough High Street. I was unable to do so as the box was sealed.
At 1.15 p.m on the following day I saw a Royal Mail coated worker adding sealing tape to the same box. I asked why.
Slough Council has refused Royal Mail permission to enter the bollard controlled end of the High Street to empty that pillar box.
Furthermore, when a Royal Mail van managed to drive over the bollard - in one of the many non-operative days - and the driver was able to park off-road, in an unobtrusive position, and perform a one minute long emptying of the pillar box, he was given a parking ticket.
You could not make it up, could you ?
Who votes for Slough's mentally retarded councillors ?
