‘In a conciliatory move designed to delight shareholders and taxpayers alike, the Royal Mail is set to issue a limited edition set of stamps depicting a severed Cable.
The set will be sensitively priced, with the first-issue premium stamps being signed by random members of the sorting office staff, who were all allowed the full share allocation of £10,000.
Initially the stamps will be valid for first class postage, but by the time they reach the public, their vastly depreciated value will take a letter no further than your next-door neighbour, and that is if you deliver it yourself. Recipients are being encouraged not to lick the stamps under any circumstances.
