And the Worst Company In Britain 2009 is...
It’s finally over. The Bitterwallet readership have spoken and the noise they are making is that Royal Mail is the Worst Company In Britain for 2009.
The Queen’s own postal service took more than a third of the vote in the end and there are many factors that led to this conclusion – a shoddy service provided by unmotivated and disinterested staff; further shoddiness caused by strikes; the price of stamps going up well above the rate of inflation; the fact (possibly untrue) that all posties knock off at midday and get to spend the rest of the day on the piss.
Either way, they’ve taken the crown from Setanta Sports and we’ll be delivering the esteemed golden turd trophy to the Royal Mail HQ in the New Year – possibly via an alternative courier company.
Thanks again to all of you who voted – we’re sure this result will be debated well into the early hours of Christmas Eve. Stick around over the holiday period as we’ll be looking for your nominations for the BEST Company In Britain 2009 over the next week or so.
