James Purnell Saves the Nation's Post Offices (Just Not in Stalybridge & Hyde)

It has been trumpeted in the national press today that James Purnell has saved Britain's Post Offices by retaining a £1bn 'Card Account' contract from 2010 to 2015. The key decision was made by himself and the newly appointed Cabinet Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR), Lord Peter Mandelson. Purnell clearly mixes in questionable circles.

However much a "saviour" of the Post Office Purnell may appear to be, in his own constituency of Stalybridge and Hyde, things ain't so rosy. Since becoming an MP in 2001 his constituency has lost 10 post offices with another two not looking so good.
