They have survived for more than a century as one of our most familiar sights: the traditional British postman trundling up the lane on his sturdy bicycle.
But now pedal-powered deliveries are falling victim to the 21st century's most fearsome foe... health and safety.  The Royal Mail's chief executive Adam Crozier is phasing out the company's 24,000 English-made bicycles and replacing them with vans because of the 'safety risk'.

Ha ha. Poor posties. Have to start running . Didn't that weasel Crozier move to ITV a few months ago though ?

Bikers, I know he's on the move. It must be his last managerial decision. It's got to be more work delivering post in a van than with a bike when you think of it logically. He's probably trying to get his own back, the Scotch fucker!

DL as usual the "Graduate" hasn't thought it through the full Health and Safety malarky.

Mail should be made illegal as should writing and grunting. That way there would be no more PO to manage, no more declarations of war and no more sex.

INCOMING!!!!!! Are you trying to take ALL the fun out of life? I mean, I could go without mail and probably sex, but grunting and war are my two last pleasures!

I haven't seen a postie on a bike for years, mind you, I don't live in the back end of nowhere.

Banned, I saw one the other day in the town. I wish to fuck they'd give ours one. He's a slow as a week in the jail.
