I telephoned my old friend Geir Haarde this morning. As usual he was in a buoyant mood and said 'everything is alright - how you say hunky-dory'. Geir knows his nation and understands the banking sector intimately. So Somerset has absolutely no need to be in any way alarmed. Our £25million investment of council tax payers money is not only rock solid but Geir assured me that the interest rate would soon reach hit a new high. Then the line went dead.

If you spent more time doing your job and less time swanning around and babbling about Excellence we would not be in this mess. Show us you understand the seriousness of the situation by joining Roger in resigning. I suggest a joint announcement at midday tomorrow to restore confidence in the County.
