Latest Issue by the Post Office

I laugh at Only Fools and Horses, but these stamps are merely laughable. Has the country that invented postage stamps so lost its dignity that it releases this tat as an official set of stamps? They are both grim and embarrassing. It's also disingenuous; you will never see any of them used on an envelope. It's time for the post office to stop issuing commemoratives altogether

Never a truer word said.
You may well laugh Andrew, I think that the majority of collectors of GB stamps now realise that these so-called commemoratives are just a gimmick in order to create revenue for the Royal Mail.
There was a time when collectors used to look forward to a new commemorative being issued, but that was back in the late 50s when one set per year was the norm, but this is no longer the case as every month a new one pops up, the latest one being the mythical King Arthur drawing Excalibur from the stone at a price of £12-75 a set.
Didn't we have an Arthurian legend set back in 1985 at a price of £1-04 ¿?
Many collectors will be saying "oh no ! Not again, this is all getting a bit too much". Fred.
