Those of you who read the news pages (they’re at the other end from the jobs) will no doubt have noticed that our nice, new modern people’s toughly caring premier Tony Blair has spotted something called “the millenium bug”. He’s found out that the Year 2000 date change may affect business!
Tony springs to life. “The time for action is now,” he thunders. “One hundred working weeks is just enough time to solve the problem.” Er, yes, but only if you assume it’s OK to still be working on millennium problems up until midnight on 31/12/99. Most serious millennium projects are signing off this summer. Still,. nice to have you on board at last, Tony.
