Who's delivering my Amazon stuff?

My Amazon UK ordered book is on it way...




> using Deutsche Post DHL.


I was surprised to read this, as I remember Jeff Bezos praising the Royal Mail in the past, saying what an asset it was for the UK. No similar service in other countries, undervalued asset, etc etc.


A bit of digging followed and I came across these articles here and here. The articles and the comments are interesting.


From my privileged position I see the unions destroying things completely. Echoes of Britain's car industry in the '70s. I'm happy to be persuaded otherwise, but haven't seen any commentary that convinces me to change my mind.


Yes, the Royal Mail will have to make changes, but it's sink or swim. Striking and damaging what remaining business and goodwill you have left makes no sense at all.
