That Sexy Email -- In Full
To: Michael, Edwina, John, Gillian, Anne
From: John
Subj: Story Time Last night I was all geared up for a night in front of the telly watching cricket, having a curry and a couple of beers while you know who is still in opposition. Suddenly I get a text from Lamont, which says I'm coming around in a spirit of full interdepartmental disclosure. So he comes round and we engage in ministerial dialogue on all sorts of stuff and then we start intensive debriefing (as you do). Then I find myself sitting in the Speaker's Chair with a beer in one hand, Mace in the other, Surrey on the box and you know who doing the full humble petition bit. Then the phone rings, and it's the economy... so now I've got my beer, Lamont going down on sterling thanks to the ERM and UK PLC chatting to me on the dog. Lamont stops, looks up at me, winks and whispers "Say hi to the economy for me" and gets back to the job in hand. Am I the worst PM in the world or what??????????????? (Editor's note, after a full enquiry, John was sacked from his job and is now a highly paid adulterer.) To have your say online click on TalkBack and go to the ZDNet UK forums.
