So when you pick up the phone and the person say “Number 10 Switchboard here, can I put you through to the Prime Minister?” do you say…
A) Can you hold on a minute while I get dressed?
B) Remind me of his name again?
C) If you really must
D) Only if he’s offering a peerage
E) He really must stop ringing me like this
F) Is he in the situation room?
G) Thank you very much
This was the dilemma I faced at 10am this morning. You can guess which one I went for.
