Why is the Post Office managing to sneak 5 to 8 Post Office closures per Borough without a word of protest from the Mayor or the GLA ?
"Hundreds of Post Offices face the axe

Royal Mail chiefs stand accused today of seriously depleting London's network of post offices.
Since December 2002, 190 post offices in the capital have either been shut or earmarked for closure. Another 120 may also be at risk.
Critics claim the cutbacks will change permanently the face of London's high streets. They say post offices are crucial to the commercial future of some areas.
The scale of the closures has been masked by the decision to spread the programme over two years, and to announce the closures only on a constituencybyconstituency basis.
The strategy has enabled the Post Office to avoid a public backlash."
Surely Ken Livingstone et al are meant to be concerned with London wide issues ?
Instead, they seem to be wasting time and money on decisions about a statue of Nelson Mandela in Trafalagar Square.
