WE CANNOT CONTROL ROYAL MAIL!
Ebay, in their wisdom have shown an expected delivery time next to the shipping methods.
They state 1-2 days for 1st class mail, however Royalmail state:
We aim to deliver most First Class mail by the next working day, including Saturdays.
They also state here: http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/jump3?catId=400144&mediaId=15500181
That you must:
Please wait 15 working days (from the due date of delivery) before completing a lost post form.

We allow the 15 working days for items to be returned to the sender if there are any delivery problems.
