IMO, the days of "The Letter" are doomed. The invention of cell phones and then the internet have seen
to that. Mail companies such as Royal Mail are well aware of this and are acting accordingly by, I would
imagine, putting their focus & energies into the parcel & business sectors of their industry.
Domestic letter deliveries, as we know them, will end in the near future. When "junk mail" companies
start pulling their business out of Royal Mail, if they start thinking it doesn't pay, that will be another
blow to them.
Royal Mail have been wasting/losing money for decades and now it's joe-public, as usual, who is expected
to pay the price for years of bad management.
Royal Mail is a Ton weight around Westminsters neck and if they could, they would privatise it.
It was not that long ago when you could post a first class letter in Aberdeen, for less than you would pay
today, and it would arrive in London, the very next morning.
If you want that sort of service/guarantee these days, you have to pay for "special delivery".
How is that progress ?
