‘Postal workers will report low-level crime or suspicious incidents to the police under a new scheme being trialled.
Royal Mail said more than 130 postmen and women in Winchester, Hampshire, will take part in the Mail Watch initiative.
Tony Marsh, director of security at Royal Mail, said: “Royal Mail postmen and women collect and deliver mail six days a week and have almost-unrivalled knowledge of the communities they serve.’

Warning! Never talk near your front door again or with the windows open.
Never open your door to the postman or woman unless you really have too!
Never argue or express your freedom of speech while the postman or woman is hovering around your home as they can listen through the front door!
In fact remain absolutely silent just in case the postman or woman mishears you, and deems you a potential domestic terrorist and threat to national security! So discussing current affairs is out, and do not mention any Hollywood films of explosive drama, or they’ll think your planning to bomb a building of two!
Then you can’t allow your children to be crying or you’ll be reported to social services as a ‘child neglect’ or ‘child abuse’ case.
Don’t let let your dog bark when they noisily crash post through the letter box or you’ll be reported for mistreatment of animals or dangerous animal on the premises. I mean the list is endless as to what a postman can report you for!
Are all uniform to become informers to be feared now?
Are we to stand the stance of toleration and allow the creation of a ‘community of enemies’ by a crashing force of more domination of a ‘police state uniform’ where all costumes are to be feared?
This is to divide communities further and to weaken them, disempower them and shatter community togetherness and deep social relations.
To amplify misery, maximise fear, lack of trust and build up on social defencive behaviour of paranoia, our communities will be concentrated with heavily based sorrow, filled with scepticalism, sadness, fear and worry.
This will create an unnatural prolonged reaction from potential danger, threat and accusation, whether true or false, it will raise social tension of postman and women spying through windows as they deliver your mail.
Drawing the curtains will raise suspicion, and not to protect your privacy, as postman and women will expect to see in!
Are you still in bed, then maybe you’re not working! Then maybe you’re doing something illegal to financially support yourself! Then the postman may report this!
Or simply being delivered packages could cause alarm. This may now induce suspicion of drug trafficking or receiving or sending other illegal material of some kind until proven otherwise.
Will the Post Office scan all items like at airports and with hold all mail until opened and checked.
Are we now in a ‘Gulag’ open air prison to live with a forced intimacy with uniform?
Are we guilty of everything until prove otherwise?
The police will not be able to cope with this sudden demand of home checks and individual surveillance, so this is perfect opportunity for a private police force to enter our home towns, the notorious G4S.
To begin with they’ll just deal with minor situations but will increase their powers to incarceration us at anytime and destroy our human rights to live, and we’ll see a total erosion of our freedoms.
We will be powerless and unable to stand our ground if it means hostile dialogues of threatening behaviour, disturbing the peace and potentially being dangerous in a public place.
A catastrophic shattering of social democracy as we’ll be brutalised by aggressive and volatile language of force and control.
