Working with Liam

Ah well, I guess it had to happen. Someone has kindly furnished the Mail on Sunday with the 2006 notes I gave to my office civil servants to prepare them for the shock of their workaholic new minister and his rather extensive list of faults and foibles. It’s been a while since I’ve read the Mail on Sunday, but I’m guessing that they’ll have some well-justified fun at my expense. In these matters it is always best to remember Gerald Ford’s aphorism to take your job seriously, but never yourself. And as my wife commented, if they think that’s bad, they should see the note for ‘Living with Liam Byrne’….(that’s a joke)
