Fi. Hope you have recovered from that marathon Cabinet last night. I haven't seen so much posturing for . . . oh, four years. Anyway whoever gets in on

5 May, the bad news is it's sure to be the government, so let's get ready for them. Regions - tell me straight, any chance we could be one? BTW, is it OK if I call you 'Fi'? We can't have e-mails being formal.

Bri. Sorry, still a tad sleepy. Did you really mean 'be' a region? Tories and UKIP say they will abolish the regions; Labour are still adjusting the boundaries in the north-east to see if they can win a referendum and the Lib Dems have us in . . . let me see . . . North East Midlands West. Lots of love Fi xxx.

Fi. Yes that's it - adjust the boundaries. They will never get these super regions through. Who wants to live in Region South-East, with Guildford as its capital? Why not a regional assembly for Bogcaster? Suits everyone - bigger, more efficient government to deliver Gershon, but retaining a traditional local dimension.

Bri. Yes, but we are only just over 40,000 hectares.

What is a hectare? Can we charge them?
