Royal Mail recruit budgerigar squad!

Having announced losses of £120 million, the Royal Mail are preparing to meet the challenge of further staffing reductions and industrial action by the recruitment of cut -price temporary workers. Purchased from Australia Post on the "cheep", the birds have settled into their new aviary and have commenced initial training.

A spokesperson for Royal Mail said that they are very pleased with the initial responses from their trials, but are considering changes to the Pricing in Proportion (PiP) structure as many of the birds have difficulty with carrying larger packets and greetings cards.
Budgerigar team leader Bill Bird stated "...most of the group have acclimatised well to the cooler climate in the UK and we have already formed a cricket team with the intention challenging the Royal Mail's carrier pigeon squad..."
