Slightly concerned that we had post delivered for our neighbour but none for us, I wondered if someone else had ours.  When I phoned Royal Mail to complain a very nice lady asked for my postcode and house number then asked if I was Jennifer Collier and checked she had my phone number correct on their system, they did but we are ex-directory so where did she get the info from?  It makes me wonder just how much information is held by organisations.  A few years ago I was too ill to go and vote in the local elections and we received a letter from one of the councillors asking why we hadn’t voted and added that no one on our street had voted either.  They check off your name and add the number of the ballot paper you are issued, so much for secrecy!
