Have your say

I am surprised that Ms Donna Jones failed to have her usual aspirational vision to realise that the loss of our mail sorting facility has lead to the loss of our Portsmouth postmark (Anger after city loses its postmark to nearest rivals, Oct 27).

As the post is now being sorted in Southampton it follows it will be stamped in Southampton.

The next step will be the loss of our PO postcode because there is no Portsmouth office which means there is no sense in a PO postcode.

We will soon all be ‘SO’ designated unless the Southampton office is rebranded.

Unfortunately, if our leader failed to grasp the future implications of the loss of our postal independence, will we encounter further unforeseen erosions of our city’s Independence in the planned future Super Council, which has more to do with personal political aspirations than any other reason, and is seemingly going forward with no mandate from the electorate.

If this ‘Super State’ becomes reality then be prepared for Portsmouth CC to follow the fate of the Portsmouth postmark and be airbrushed out of existence.

We cannot trust our councillors to protect our interests as an independent city in this matter.

We must have a referendum on this planned super council and bury it once and for all.
