    So what is so funny about it?

    • It just made me laugh when I received it …

      Seriously I get far too many of these! A bit of computer security goes a long way.

  2. I can’t imagine Cameron falling to such low levels that he would allow himself to write such poor English, even though it was a begging note. Even if he had the shock of having to pay for a round twice, he wouldn’t stoop to such poor writing skills, even if his life depended on it 🙂

    • I hope we are not seeing some nation stereotyping there 🙂

      I can’t upset him too much. I am concerned that if Scotland gets independence and I need to do a quick flit, that I will be allowed in. Cameron assures me that he will do his best for me!
