The week after discussing the demise of the boozer, it's the turn of the Post Office. The Riddoch Questions posse manage to talk about nearly everything except queues, stamps or postal orders. Which is a blessing for us all because, it leaves more time for kicking politicians, 'capers' and more gossip. As ever, Richard is inclined to use adult terms in descriptions and hence the cherished 'Clean' designation can not be used this week. Caution is urged if you are playing this in the 4x4 on the school run.
