We have swathes of turkish nationals flooding our estates with pizza leaflets up to thrice daily.

I filled in a form saying I did not want unaddressed mail. I still get it so now I put it back in the post box

What has it got to do with downing street?
It is the money grabbing post office that gets paid extra for shoving rubbish through our letter boxes. Put it all back in the post box then they may get sick of it

Here in Holland we have stickers to put on the mail boxes (issued by the local authorities) 3 options - no sticker = you get everything. "no no" you just get addressed mail.
" no yes" you just get the local free newspaper and relevant local authority stuff. It works well.

We get a huge amount of clothing collection bags, take away menus and leaflets, I can come home from work and there can be three collection bags through the door in a day and has anyone noticed we seem to be getting rag and bone men back, I have seen three or four different ones driving round the area I live in a matter of days. I never remember seeing so many before, when we were kids and not that long ago they had an horse and cart and a man with a very load voice that you could only catch the last word of BONE.
