It was great to join local Lambeth Labour councillors, members of the Communication Workers’ Union, and Florence Eshalomi MP to speak to local residents about the campaign to save Clapham Common Post Office. The closure of this busy branch would be a massive blow to the local community. Everybody walking past was outraged that the Post Office is considering this decision, especially in the wake of the Horizon scandal. So many Crown Post Offices are closing. It can’t be right that services suffer too as a consequence of this mismanagement.
It’s clear by the sheer number of people at last weekend’s event, and the thousands who have already signed the petition that people are worried about the impact this will have on our high streets. If needs be, the government must intervene to protect our Post Office but we can’t rely on them to do the right thing.
