ABSTRACT
FOR Kevin Carter it is a matter of regret that he has to buy anything at all from the Post Office. 'You could not print what I think about those people,' he says. 'I wouldn't buy a stamp from them if I could avoid it. I hate them, despise them.' It seems incredible that anyone could harbour such loathing for an institution that appears to typify all that is solid and honest in British life, but he and his wife Julie have experienced a very different side to what remains a huge retail network. And they are far from alone.
