Unfortunately the bloggosphere is no better than the mainstream when it comes to this 'nothing story', with O'Neill (Pint of Unionist Lite) lamenting his loss of sleep should the queens head not be on our stamps anymore. This is what he said:
We can all sleep a little bit easier tonight:
A law is set to be passed guaranteeing that UK stamps will continue to feature the Queen's head - even if Royal Mail enters foreign hands.
At present, there is no legal obligation to show the monarch's image, although Royal Mail has always done so.
Postal Affairs Minister Ed Davey said any potential buyer would have to be "mad" to drop it, but the new law would provide a "safeguard" just in case.
Haven't we got anything better or more important to talk about?
