Letter: In Scotland, the mail always gets through

Sir: It must be different in England and Wales, judging by the recent readers' letters complaining of poor deliveries of first-class mail. We live at the end of a half-mile of steep farm track; the only visible habitation is the farm itself, a quarter mile below our house. The mail arrives at the door daily, usually by 8am, often containing letters posted the previous day by one of our daughters in rural Devon or rural Northumberland.

Please, Lord, don't allow them to privatise the Post Office; many in Scotland would lose a treasured service.
