COMPUTERGRAM AND THE UK POST OFFICE

By CBR Staff Writer

If you receive the thing in the UK, give the postman who delivered your Computergram this morning a special smile: while the UK Post Office, for all its faults, manages to deliver more of the mail on time than most of its continental counterparts it takes an average of eight days for a letter in Italy – and to make a healthy profit into the bargain, the super-efficient postal arm of the Deutsche Bundespost managed to rack up losses of a cool DM2,500m – that’s equivalent to $1,300, or UKP775m – last year.
