Update on the Post Office Campaign.
Thank you everybody who lent their support to my campaign to save the Village Post Office, which may or may not be threatened with closure at some point in the future.
I have to say that I was a bit taken aback by the response. Although I know a couple of people did complain that I didn’t include any genuine postal workers on the single and was thus being patronising and imperialist, it seems to have raised sackloads of awareness and that is the main thing.
The record has yet to get to number one, but that is only a matter of time.
I did think that the support from Africa was the most beautifully apt and funny thing that could happen. And several other people chipped in cheerfully. Thank you.
Then I received an email from Hungary.
Simon, at Amstelladagain, sent me a photograph.
He has MOWN ‘Save the Post Office’ in huge great capital letters into his lawn. In Hungary. So that it can be seen from the air, as you fly across in a helicopter.
The photo’s not great, because he’s only leaning out of a first floor window. You can only really read it from the air. As you fly over Hungary in a helicopter.
This is, without doubt, the most barking mad thing that has ever happened on the Internet, ever.
UPDATE!!! If you are trying to post a comment but cannot post a comment, it is not me that has banned you!!!
It is Haloscan, which is normally so good, not being so good.
I have not banned you, no I would not do such a thing. I feel your pain.
