Death sentence passed on Harbour Street Post Office

The struggle is over, the Glasgow Herald reports that Harbour Street is to close along with 16 others in the Highlands . A Labour party sponsored kick in the teeth to our community (via the post office lackeys).
Comments on the BBC site:
Liberal Democrat MP, Danny Alexander, is to seek a Commons debate on what he called "this betrayal by government".
Highlands and Islands Labour MSP Peter Peacock said he was pleased Pultneytown had been saved.
He added: "I appreciate the impact the closures elsewhere will have on local communities, particularly for the elderly."
Fergus Ewing, MSP for Inverness East, Nairn and Lochaber described the consultation process as "more cosmetic than real".

What about a major protest march in Inverness?
That would be a bit more use than debate!
