because EU competition laws have lost the post office most of its' work doing business post, and so it has had to put up the cost of domestic post to compensate.

Stamps aren't expensive if you think about it.

We just have one class here. 80cents for a stamp, no matter where it goes (so it costs the same for me to post to En-ger-land as it does for me to post to someone in the next city)
