Would you trust the people next door with your post?
Royal Mail wants to scrap its "while you were out" cards and leave, say, your Amazon order with your neighbour instead. So no more queueing at some dingy sorting office. Good news, right? But do you trust your neighbour not to shake or take a peak at your new boxset?
If not, you'll be able to opt out of the system, to be approved later this year, but perhaps it's to be encouraged to bring about social cohesion as much as convenience. One in eight of us doesn't know our neighbour, according to research released in January. If they, too, decide they'd quite like a squiz at Game of Thrones, why not watch it together?
Well, it's an idea.
