MPs get Valentine cards through the post—about the post

MPs are receiving Valentine cards today (Friday) from postal workers.
But it’s not a traditional Valentine’s message, the CWU postal workers’ union admits.
The cards urge them not to sell off part of Royal Mail and leave Britain broken hearted.
“The public as well as the postal workers really do love Britain’s publicly-owned postal service,” said the union’s general secretary Billy Hayes.
“Breaking up Royal Mail and taking up with a new partner will hurt the service and hurt customers.
“MPs shouldn’t cheat on the British people with a smooth-talking new partner who can’t be trusted They shouldn’t break the nation’s hearts.”

Roses are red,

And we’ll vote for you.
