In opposition to the continued privatisation of the Royal Mail, the closure of Bishop Street Post Office in Leicester and its transfer to the basement of WH Smith, I promise to boycott WH Smith until the plan to close and move Bishop Street is halted.
Furthermore, if this plan goes through, I won\'t buy anything at WH Smith ever again.
This pledge is sponsored by the Leicestershire general membership branch of the IWW union.
Although we are using the facilities of a petition hosting site, please be aware that this is not actually a petition but rather a pledge from you the people who choose to sign it. In other words, we will not be presenting the list of signatories to the bosses at Post Office Ltd, nor to the Council or the Government. We will however publicise the number of signatories to this pledge as encouragement to refuse to use WH Smith until the closure of Bishop Street Post Office is halted.
