The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days.

If I

  • worked in the "Policy&Professionalism" department of a large public sector organisation; and

  • sent an email containing the salutation, "Dear Director's"

The Editor
