Taking Stock - E-envoy experiences trouble with his e-mails.
What a joy it is to be living in this technology-based era. There is not a day goes by without some e-related or internet related incident.
This week TS got wind of the fact that our very own e-envoy Alex Allan – a close friend of PM Tony Blair – has backed up his role not with spin, but substance.
It appears that anyone who sends Allan an e-mail at the Cabinet Office will receive a reply personally written by the man himself and not from a PA or secretary.
This is indeed an admirable feat – one only hopes he has enough time to get some work done. However, things don’t always go to plan.
TS hears that callers to the office who asked for Allan’s e-mail were warned officials were having a few problems with external e-mails. ‘Try a fax,’ suggested one.
