RESIST POST OFFICE CLOSURES
In the latest round of post office closures, seven were lost in the City of Oxford. Across our county 21 post offices have closed in the past six years. Post offices closures impact most upon the most vulnerable in society. A recent survey by the National Consumer Council found that there was significant evidence that peripheral urban housing estates were particularly affected by closures. You can order essay or even other complex assignments and be sure that the topic of urban housing will be fully explored.
Oxford has already lost one of its sorting offices in Lime Walk, Headington with sorting facilities to soon move to Swindon.
In October last year, 2,000 sub-postmasters marched on parliament protesting at Post Office closures and presented a 4 million signature petition to Tony Blair; the largest ever UK petition.
And Labour still isn't listening.
Post Offices are essential for people who rely on them to collect benefits and pensions. Local businesses rely on Post Offices, and neighbouring small businesses often suffer a drop in trade.
When a local Post Office closes, often the last shop in the community closes too. A van for a couple of hours a week is no replacement for a full time Post Office. Labour's Post Office cuts will hit the vulnerable the hardest.
Gordon Brown's attack on the post office network looks something like this:
This all means fewer Post Offices, providing fewer services to fewer people.
