    so that narrows it down to being able to post a plain bit of paper with a tad bit of writing on it.

    Porn for sale in newsagents is not considered to be obscene, indecent or offensive under the obsenities act. Child porn would be, as would videotapes containing films not passed by the BBFC.

    Alcoholic liquids with alcohol content lower than 70%
    So special brew is out.

    Filth...does that mean I can't send those fetted lumps of mud from the cow field down at the bottom of the garden? mind you i suppose that comes under environmental waste.

    don't you love the way they state both above and below the 70% alcohol limit but never actually say exactly 70%...?
    AH HA!! LOOPHOLE!!! lets crank up that special home brew a notch or two; from 'intoxicating' to 'blinding'.

    wait - how the heck can I fit all this in a 'letter'? assuming a letter is a flat envelope. the aptly named 'parcel' being the fatter, capaceious version.
