The thing is we can't give an advantage to the competitors because, mail wise, we have none. We're the only company delivering mail. I don't think business and the general public will be too fussed if they don't get their mail on a Saturday as long as the packets are going out. Cutting a weekday will cause havoc. Can you imagine not delivering letters to the DVLA or the DSS or any other large company. What will they do with their staff given most of their work is likely mail driven? Most of these large companies don't work Saturdays so IMO that'll be the only day they can cut and still keep the public on side. I'm talking about mail only here as packets will still go out on Saturday (and likely Sunday in the future)

Can't see that happening, the mail would still have to be sorted at the outward MC and to a degree at the inward MC.
