Subject Elections - opportunities and threats
Sorry to hear you might be getting some Lib Dems this time, but we haven't had much trouble with ours. Much like the Tories really - though generally better educated. And they talk more. You might find some of your afternoon meetings start to threaten sherry time.
Two pieces of advice: make sure the tea in the members' lounge is fairly traded, and don't ever mention Jeremy Thorpe.
Thanks for the advice. Have just sent Martha out to stock up with Twinings. Actually, I have already talked to my leader about the need for some changes if we are going to move up to 'excellent'.
She looked quizzical for a moment, then said: 'Is it time we had a new head of trading standards?' Most gratifying to have it confirmed that my position in their minds retains that status of effortless invulnerability for which one strives. I did eventually get the message across, though, and I'm going at the end of September.
