I'm only guessing here but these may be in addition to the normal Post Office vans .
Around here in the sticks posties run round in the normal vans but when I was in London it was a very common sight to see them pushing a trolley on their rounds . Very often chaining them to a nearby lamp post while they delivered to a particular street .
These electric thingies may be replacements for the trollies .
Could be this, but those would never be any good for a rural delivery.

Return of the afternoon post then . Two trips out a day for you ;)
More chance of plaiting rice krispies than second delivery coming back.

Right now RM is trialing a system where certain types of mail are held back for up to 3 days unless a first class letter is also going to that address.

Cracking idea. I’m sure you as pissed off with humping around spam mail as recipients are with receiving it.

Even better idea, perhaps the RM could install an industrial shredder at the sorting office, and customers could subscribe to having spam mail shredded rather than delivered. The sender wouldn’t know if the subscriber had had it delivered or shredded, the RM gets paid for the spam mail and the shredding option.

Out of every 5 pieces of mail we get, 4 of them go in the shredder, and 3 of the 4 unopened. It’s ridiculous.

The best way to deal with spam mail is return it to sender with REFUSED in big letters on the envelope.

It's easy enough to opt out of spam in the mail, but as it's an income stream to keep people like Kirkz in gainful employment, and the alternative, of handing over the mail to some clowns like Arriva, who will without doubt provide a much more expensive and far inferior service, I'm happy to recieve it and sling it in the bin.

The UK and its ‘Unsinkable Aircraft Carriers’ – A guide

The term Unsinkable Aircraft Carriers first appeared during the Second World War, to describe the military use of islands in the Pacific Ocean for the American forces fighting the Empire of Japan.

Since then, Britain and other nations have considered similar strategies to secure military power projection. A look at possible British ‘unsinkable carriers’ points to the relevance of the British Overseas Territories.

Are More British Troops Going To Belize?

Belize, formerly known as 'British Honduras', gained its independence from Britain 40 years ago.

It has been 40 years since Belize – formerly 'British Honduras' – gained its independence from Britain.

But Britain's presence in the small central American country could be set to increase.

It was in September 1981 that Belize, the last British colony on American mainland, gained its independence, however the British Army did not leave the country immediately.

So, to put it in a nutshell, you're saying that the former British Honduras now known as Belize. Was a British colony until forty years ago, when it gained it's independence from Britain. And furthermore, that for the last forty years Belize has been independent, because, forty years ago Belize gained their independence?
