As if I didn't have enough to do

Now I have to sue the Government. When am I going to fit that in?

Yeah I'm on it too. I don't understand this. I used to work for the IT dept in local Gvmnt and there are procedures in place for backup - the data is stored in two different geographical places to avoid losing data in case of flood/fire etc. It's not on two disks in someone's pocket which they carry around. All the data is on servers linked by microwave links. All the buildings are secure and pass key controlled. This is very very odd. Really very fishy..

Philipa said...

Ah, just found out the audit office wanted the data so they copied it onto disk and put it in the post.

You can't make it up can you??

Lilith said...

No, Pip, you couldn't. Still trying to get my jaw off the floor. And they want us to have ID cards?

Don't worry dear. Darling has said that if you loose any money from your account you will be compensated by the government. However, that means, this will come from the public purse, paid for... in tax by you.
Merry Christmas.

We're doooomed !

Totally fucked !

Bollocksed !

By the way have you tried one of those Cadbury's Boost bars - chocolate rippled on top with a flat underside ? Delicious !

Lilith, Precious, We are not All Doomed! The Old Brown Gorgon will be out sooner than anyone could imagine !
Hitch will verify this as I am his "Personal Witch".

Wonderful news re-your girl and Oxford, I wish her well. xxxx

P.S. I`ve actually written something on my Blog, so hope you have time to have a peek,

PPS> What a "Bummer" England going down. Words fail !

It really is getting nasty for the Darling/Brown Sinasty.

Brown started all the rot years ago, mucking about with the systems which, although they creaked, at least brought something in. Because he was snidely meddling with people's income, making sure he had more than enough for his ill thought-out objectives, and aided and abetted by the odious Ed Balls, he probably didn't expect to be held back from his 'dream', by Blair for so long. Now the fans are having to work overtime to stop all that s*** hitting them.

And the s*** it will continue to fly for years now.

Darling is really on the ropes as well, and there's plenty more stuff to throw at him. Good.

Lilith said...

Welcome Dr G. I am so reassured :-)

Lilith said...

E-K I am afraid I am a chocolate snob. I prefer my choc salmonella free and with a cocoa content. So no. I haven't got that depressed yet.

Lilith said...

Scroblene, Brown has to go. But I want to watch him squirm some more. Darling has no financial qualifications or experience.

Lilith said...

Trubes, I think the England footi team is a metaphor for the country.

I am so proud of my girl, though a little bemused..

Lilith said...

I told her to get down to Somerfield for an interview, not Somerville...

Dr. Grosseteste said...

Am I to take it that your scion is headed towards Oxford? What college? I fondly remember my own days at Christ Church; from buttery to Undercroft, then an evening with the beagles... all gone for me now.

Lilith said...

It remains to be seen Dr Grosseteste, but its all quite exciting, especially for her Granddad, who was disappointed none of his offspring showed any interest in Oxbridge.

True Blue said...

Shirley William and Margaret Thatcher graduated from Sommerville Lilith, so if it was good enough for them, it`s surely good enough for your daughter.
Oooh you must be very proud of her !

electro-kevin said...

A separate post on your daughter's achievement perhaps, Lilith ?

She has her mother's good looks then, obviously. ;-)
