The new system is atrocious. If and when you do get through - at the fourth time of trying a managed it after twenty m inutes - I was talking for a further twenty or so minutes and lost the connection when I was supposed to make a payment by putting my card details in myself although I had never been told to do so. After no communication for three minutes I hung up. Get your act together Tallants House. I spend a fortune annually and you treat me - and others by the sound of it - like rubbish

I have been a member of the Philatelic Bureau since 1963, collecting mint, used, booklets, Year Books and FDCs - not an inconsiderable outlay each year, especially with the price of annual supplements in which to house the stamps. My standing order for years has been for 2 FDCs, one for the FDC album and the other for my 'used' album. Recently the Bureau decided to send only one FDC per issue, a change which I have not authorised. I have tried on numerous occasions to contact them by phone with no success, sometimes being kept waiting for over half an hour. Furthermore the credit card I use to pay for the stamps has expired so I need to tell them the new details. What a shambles! Gone are the days when I could ring and within minutes speak to a friendly operator, now I cannot speak to anyone at all.

I recently decided to post to myself some stamps, I needed to have them franked so that I could put them in my used album. The stamps were some that I purchased some years ago. I sent myself 4 sets of stamps, I was expecting them to be properly franked and was much surprised when they arrived with no franking on them at all. Envelope after envelope came without a franking on them, on one occasion I was very angry when two of the stamps had a biro mark written across them, needless to say this made them worthless. I have been saving stamps for over 50 years and have never been treated like this before, what on earth is happening to The British Post Office. Please advise as to why franking looks like a thing of the past. Eric Gates.

I find this website very difficult and only want to see and purchase British Commemorative Stamps and all I get is Advertisements for foreign stamps. I thought that the Bureau was for British Stamps only. how can I purchase these items?
