60p for a First Class Stamp!
to paraphrase a cake advert: "Exceedingly Good Value".
I want to send a letter from London to Glasgow, and I would like it to be there the next day.
OK it might take 2 days, but its still a tad cheaper than me delivering it by hand
(alternatively, I could just send an e-mail)
In spite of the price rise, the British Postal Service is the fifth cheapest (after Malta, Slovenia, Cyprus & Ireland), and is half the price of the equivalent First Class Post in Denmark, Italy, Germany & the Netherlands.
The percentage price rise of almost 25% will be the figure that is quoted in the news, but 60p is still a strikingly good price for the service
