Stuck Seat Post!

Right, i've had this problem for a while, basically my seat post is stuck in the frame and i can't get it out. I tryed everything from Sheldon Browns help page thing... anyway finally i got to the last method (everything before failed) and i cut the seat post to find that it wasnt hollow, basically if you look at it, its abit like a "Peace sign" so i can cut it out, and its very hard to even get the hacksaw blade through the gaps.

I was wondering wether it is possible to actually drill it out, because i think thats my only option? could you suggest where to go to do this, or any other options to getting it out.

My bike is a Raleigh Road bike, white aluminium frame and aluminium seat post. Im not sure what model it is, but there is something which says R1 700c. I've been sorting this out for a few months and still havent got the post out, and it seems to be taking forever!!

Thanks in advance,
Ollie.
