I rarely a reject a plum job. So when Roderick Corrie asked me to join his team in the boardroom I could hardly say no. It is a golden opportunity to line my pockets with yet more of the folding stuff by persuading those in local government (who know me only by my sanitised public reputation) that a deal with Public-i is well worthwhile. The kindly prose in the press release refers to my wide experience running administrations and managing change effectively. It is probably best that my personal difficulties with the new adminstration at County Hall were not mentioned, as well as my ongoing relationship with talented affiliates from Harrow to Hastings. That's more for Private Eye than Public-i, methinks.

When you reside, as I am privileged to do, in a Grade II listed property there are inevitable matters of alteration to be considered. Being of unusual stature the ceiling heights of this famous old farmhouse have proved a personal inconvenience. Equally my extended business committments require sound-proof locations that can be kept apart from the main dwelling. I need space for all the necessary equipment to keep me linked up to the cloud and that will also mean relocating the water-bed and the mirrors that surround it. Happily my application is designated as one to be dealt with under "delegated powers". But I have taken the liberty of inviting Cllrs Polly Colthorpe and Ray Stanley round to sample the glories of the South Warmore wine cellar. They may be Tories but they're both on the Planning Committee. Perhaps they will also be interested in joining my growing band of affiliates.

I would like to wish my many new friends, colleagues, affiliates and associates a very happy new year. 2010 is dawning with rich promise as well as the sweet smell of success. As you see I have already teamed up with Pascal on my new enterprise. Monsieur Deneuve is a specialist. His company manufacturers very clever detection equipment which can be used to see inside maritime containers. Before that he was in charge of selling Lee Cooper jeans. No doubt this expertise will come in handy for local authorities who sign up with my new commercial vehicle Future Communities I know Pascal is right behind me. His English is a little rudimentary and his haircut leaves a lot to be desired, but who am I to carp. So let us all pull together for a rosy future for all our future communities - especially mine. Feel free to drop by anytime at South Warmore and I now have some new phone numbers:
01398 323153 or 07768 000500
