  1. worrying that royal mail feel they have the time to organise and admin a
    frivolous competition at Christmas time

  2. I’m not sure if their marketing dept would have much impact on operations or other areas of their business but well done on sucking the fun out of a christmas competition though. £1000 would really help me out at this time of year

  3. Another pointless ‘initiative’ from Royal Mail, I’m not going to waste my time for a mere chance of winning £1000. Not worth the effort, now if they ran a competition where they PROMISED to fix to most voted for problem at Royal Mail, then I would take part.

  4. C’mon guys – Bah Humbug eh?
    Enter if you fancy it.
    Don’t bother if you don’t.
    Sometimes we all need some positive thoughts to push our businesses forward.
    You need to try lots of things to get a couple of successes.
    On the plus side, dissing something has a positive to it – the less people who enter, the better chance the rest of us have….
