The Post Office Mediation

The abhorrent behaviour of the Post Office towards its subpostmasters has never been clearer.  The ITV portrayal of the scandal is a brilliant, yet painful watch. The biggest miscarriage of justice in UK history. What an awful fact.

A point I thought worth noting as a mediator is the fact that mediation was attempted, but failed. It failed because the Post Office were dishonest and the subpostmasters walked out. For a mediation to run, all participants must behave in good faith. Intimidation, deception and bullying have no place at mediation. Imagine how much time, money and mental health could have been saved, had a genuine mediation taken place?!  What a terribly sad story. And it’s not over yet.
