What's wrong with the UK post office as a whole ? I had my NSU issue for more than 2 weeks now and I'm based in Paris, France. That is really strange... Confused

Perhaps its the distribution method of NSU. I'm not sure exactly how it works perhaps Harris could explain (again probably). I assume they are sent to a distribution depot as a lot in the U.K. then sent out individually by someone in the U.K. (or is it somewhere else in Europe?). If this is the case perhaps the European arm of the distribution service has something against the U.K. and does not send them out straight away but makes us last on the list.

I'm not sure I have the whole story. I know that copies are shipped overseas along with the distribution list (i.e. mailing labels of subscribers) and other supplies that the overseas shipper might need. The re-shipper then forwards the copies to subscribers.

The printer has attempted to explain to me why they originate from different places from issue to issue and therefore include postmarks from different countries but it's never full registered (yes, I am sometimes pretty thick. Roll Eyes).

Me too.

There's a box of Iron Man out there somewhere, posted on 5th May, as well as a few promos posted 2 weeks ago.

Only the subscription copies seem to have a problem. Diamonds copies are in the shops and have been for a week so they were not slow to get to the UK. Very Strange.

Diamond copies are not sent by the Post Office. It is Diamond US that send them to Diamond Uk via their own carrier. It doesn't explain why your Post Office copies are not here but it does explain why shops got theirs.
