I WONDER how many readers realise that August 21 will be Chaos Day for the Royal Mail as they bring in the new method of charging for our post. From that date the charge will depend on the weight but also the length, breadth and thickness of each letter

I WONDER how many readers realise that August 21 will be "Chaos Day" for the Royal Mail as they bring in the new method of charging for our post.

From that date the charge will depend on the weight but also the length, breadth and thickness of each letter.

The root cause of this nonsense is, of course, EU directives on postal policy across Europe, and Royal Mail's efforts to comply.
