Never mind Troops – get the postboxes out?

Sinn Fein have been given a quick and not so positive response from An Post in the Republic over their call to have post boxes closed. The post boxes in question happen to have been used from the pre-partition period and have Royal Insigia on them.

Update: In something of a disparity with their southern colleagues (not the first time – don’t mention the Euro), Sinn Fein in Omagh dont mind postboxes with Royal Insignia on them so long as they are painted green.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
