~ A fait accompli ~
Flyers began appearing in our only Post Office a few weeks ago informing the customers that the Post Office was considering relocating to a branch of a High Street chain of stationers. There would, the Post Office stated, be a consultation period and no immediate decision would be taken. Then, early last week, I noticed that the shop element of the branch (cards, envelopes, packaging, etc.) had literally disappeared overnight. And then, this morning, I see this in the window of the High Street stationers. So much for consultation.
