# Because
the failure of Northern Rock was absolutely in no way related to the poor business decisions and greed of the owners, and therefore should be supported by the tax payer.

The post office's problems are to do with shifts in trends due to technology, but it still remains a vital service that is unfortunately unable to compete with email and so forth. So it's all the post office's own fault, and why should the government support this essential service?

# I fail to see how it is
a vital service - for example, if I wish to transfer a parcel from location A to location B, I simply email it!
I can send attachments of up to 3.5kg with my computer!
Beep brimshaws!

I would miss my local post office a bit if it went. Every time I've been in there, it's just one man, on his own, in a white room, behind sheets
of reinforced plexiglass. I wonder if he ever gets to leave?

# MY Post Office is a vital service.
A very nice lady called "Jane" works there.
After she has weighed parcels, she turns round to the label machine.
She wears very tight black trousers and has a very lovely bottom.
This has positive effects on my wellbeing.
Unfortunately, my continuous string of packages mailed to myself is making me skint!.

Anybody need anything small sending to them?...... Please?......
