What idiot in Royal Fail put a post box THAT high up where nobody can reach it? Not without a very long Ladder anyway.

Methinks.......
1.... photoshop
2... the postbox is put there for "decoration"./ joke
... certainly looks as though it is only the front of the box,... as the "mouth" seems to be blocked up with some shiny black material !..  Roll eyes

Indeed. If you look at the keyhole on that pic and then look at the ER next to it, when did you ever see one on a postbox looking like that?
It's a fake postbox Wink

You'd get the impresion from the Daily Fail that someone actuall made a hole in the wall to insert a postbox,  rather some prankster sticking a fake front to the wall  (like the one on the bridge)...

Re: I saw this and thought of you..

Yup apparently so! I noticed it on the DM website but a few here obviously didn't!
Not that I'm an avid reader of the DM but seeing as my favourite (the Sun) is now subscription only and the only other one is the daily star I needed a counter to it lol. Although in hindsight there is the mirror..
