I guess maybe the six thousand jobs at £12.50 per hour that Martin Walsh has mentioned are to do with making sure the postal votes and election materials are processed & delivered. Even so I doubt six thousand 'volunteers' will not be enough to get them delivered.

I don't believe that figure reported as an average. Isn't it likely that areas getting 6p per item are throwing off the average when many may be as low as 2p? The mean value would actually represent what most people got.

I think we got five or six pence per item last time but can't remember exactly. I'm not looking forward to doing them at Xmas time at all but it is obvious that the house of parliament is at a stalemate so it had to be either an election or a second referendum. Both of these choices could result in ending up back where we are now. It really is a proper mess.
