DID Royal Mail’s new chief executive Moya Greene do much research before agreeing to the job?

Ms Greene, who is going to join our wonderful ‘snail mail’ service next month, after being in charge of Canada Post, is quoted as saying she was “honoured to be joining such a great company”.

“Great company” in what sense? Poisoned chalice, more like.

Just wait until the unions cut her down to size – she won’t be quite so chirpy then!
