JOHN Baron, Chairman of the Association of British Philatelic Societies says the Royal Mail is spoiling stamp collecting.

“I used to collect every issue of Great Britain stamps. Ultimately, you just can’t afford to do it. It’s only one or two people with a bottomless pit of money who can.”

He adds:

“The young people of today cannot afford to collect new issues… Young people are the future.”
