The Post Office plans to privatise its service at 40 Frederick Street on 15 April with the immediate loss of nine jobs. 

Plans first emerged on 7 January. 

However, the date for closing the Crown Office was announced on Friday 14 February, the same day that politicians, union officials, Post Office employees, and local residents met in a public meeting to discuss resisting the move.

This morning, the Spurtle received the following photo of a document, whose source could not vouchsafe its authenticity. 

As a public service, we have considered it. 

To the best of our understanding, the document has no basis in fact. 

We can only conclude that it represents a monstrous imposition upon the city.
