My Private Eye (expected Wed.12/6) hasn't arrived yet. That's the second instance this year. When I mentioned it to my postie he said that he'd not seen any PEs at all recently. So, before I contact PE subs again: Has any other subscriber received theirs, or not?

My "signed for" letter fitted through the letterbox and I wasn't in so they just pushed it through.

Small thing I know but the sender probably gets a fake signature (or none at all ?)

Yes, arrived on time - and I've not missed any of those. A political weekly is less certain in arriving, sometimes 1-3 days late. But now being delivered sometime, which wasn't true a year ago!

Private Eye is published on a Tuesday, on sale in Central London and posted that day as well for Wednesday, when the rest of the stockists get them.

One of my mag subs was two days late last week, but I get Private Eye from the shop on a Weds.

Thanks P68. I assume you're in SE15 or SE22. Nothing today either, so I'll get my claim in.

They're not the only things that have gone missing this year. A slghtly larger than A3 flat medium parcel didn't arrive in ?March. I was perhaps lucky to get the replacement three weeks ago. I found it mid-afternoon left on the doorstep, definitely no bell ring. And a 'signed-for' letter was delivered here on Friday, with no attempt to get a signature. I think I can feel a bulk call to RM complaints coming on.

Another sitrep request on Private Eye deliveries in SE22 please. Mine, due yesterday, again hasn't yet arrived. Thankfully the crossword is online, so I can at least be getting on with that.

Thank you. I'm in the lowlands.

A few weeks ago I got someone's Private Eye who lives in Melford Road. Seeing as it was so close, I hand delivered it to them.

The Royal Mail complaints page [personal.help.royalmail.com], once you manage to reach it, offers you two "Email Us" options:

1) "Send a message now" -- ie complete a web form. "We aim to reply within 3 working days"
2) "Alternatively, you can contact us at customer.service.team@royalmail.com
We aim to answer emails sent to this address within 10 working days."

I thought deliveries had greatly improved, but a time critical letter which was sent to me First Class last Thursday has still not arrived, GRRRRRRRR.

I'm wondering if it has been misdelivered to somebody else's house and they are away.

Anybody else still having problems??

No post for most of last week melbourne grove area, missing parcels etc , I presume no cover for holiday shifts, anyone know if there's a direct number for Highshore Road? The googleable one is the general enquiries number

Well I take it back.


The item just arrived. The stupid sender posted it second class on Friday instead of first class as promised on Thursday.

So on this occasion, not Royal Mail's fault.

Profuse apologies, Royal Mail smiling smiley

In the last couple of weeks, and possibly for another couple, deliveries have been by odd posties and at odd times because of holiday cover - if it hasn't happened to you yet it probably will. But things are getting delivered, and in the main on days expected, in my experience.

I was about to conclude that the latest Private Eye, due last Wednesday, was definitely the fourth to go missing this year, and then it arrived today.

It makes you wonder just how many people subscribe to Private Eye in ED for the sorting office to get them lost or delivered days later?

I was going to buy a sub instead of buying from the shop, but I won't bother now.
