Taking Stock – E-envoy experiences trouble with his e-mails.

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.
