Royal Mail Price increases

Wonderful!  We've just received notification from Royal mail that the cost of postage will go up in April.  At the moment they "cannot announce all our prices until our regulator, Ofcom, has completed its public consultation".  But if the national press is to believed (see the information on the Press Association website here) it is going to be substantial, possibly up by 50%.  Which means that the cost of postal subscriptions to CJS Weekly will have to go up simply to cover the cost of postage.  Unless the Chancellor changes the VAT rate we don't expect digital, either email or download, subs to change.
