Poor old Warner Baxter's laid up after an operation. We quite like him as he's a decent sort and he makes Policy Team say nice things to us when we deserve them. So we were all very happy to sign and send a card and Frog included some suitably doggerelly get-well verse.
Warner's emailed T.Aldous asking him to pass on his thanks to all concerned. Which is really nice.
The gilt is scraped off the gingerbread quite considerably by T.Aldous' hand-written coda:
"Policy Team bought Warner some wine and nuts as a present for when we went round to visit the other day. We didn't have time to put out a tin for staff donations but if you would like to contribute something towards the £14.97 cost of the gift please put it in the tin provided."
"The poor devils must be on their uppers," mutters Sybil.
