The Post Office has been providing essential services all over the country, even during the darkest economic days of the country. Now that we are the fourth or fifth largest economy in the world, we are bent upon closing 2,500 more, in addition to many thousands more closed in the last 10 years. What could be more irrational?

I have lived in London for about 42 years, and for 24 years in Belsize Park. Belsize ward at one time had three post offices, now we have one, in England's Lane. It is a meeting place for many, but it is still on the hit list. Closing it would be an act of pure vandalism.
