Have you written... the Royal Mail about the truly revolting decision to honour Marie Stopes with a special commemorative postage stamp? She's been chosen as one of various British women to be so honoured. This is a gross and offensive thing to have done: she was anti-semitic, sent a book of poems to Hitler as a gift with a gushing letter, and believed that people she considered "defective" (poor eyesight, physically handicapped, ill) should be prevented from having children...

This truly dreadful person should be regarded with contempt and horror. Write and explain to the Royal Mail that the stamps must be withdrawn.

I thought at first that the story about the commemorative stamp was a spoof - but apparently it isn't. Write now. You might find this link helpful.
