At the St Rollox office in Springburn, Glasgow, students visited the picket line to show support and one supporter – Stephen Dolan – brought a guitar and together with the strikers they sang a song.

“The Posties’ Protest Song” is sung to the tune of The Specials’ “A Message to you Rudy”

It was created at the Hawthorn Street delivery office where Stephen also performed.


Stop your messing around
You’ve got billions of pounds
Why don’t you try doing our rounds?

Chorus:
Leighton and Crozier
A message to you Leighton and Crozier

You’re just trying to cut wages
You’re a caveman from the dark ages
Trying to dismantle the PO in stages
Why don’t you just increase the posties’ wages?

Chorus:
Leighton and Crozier
A message to you Leighton and Crozier
