Most awesome Post-Office Press Statement ever

Problems at Queen Elizabeth's coronation upon decision that she should also be called Queen Elizabeth II in Scotland, (unlike James I and VI) even though there had never been a Queen Elizabeth I in Scotland. When the first post-boxes with the royal cipher EIIR were unveiled in Scotland, some were vandalised and several blown up with 'crude home-made bombs'. The director of the Post Office in Edinburgh said:
The matter is so trivial that we are letting it take its normal course.
Kind of sums up the Post Office's answer to any problem- pay debates, lost parcels etc.
