ED BALLS BUTTONS
This morning I had an e-mail from ED BALLS. Now I don’t want you to think that this is a regular occurrence. We DO NOT COMMUNICATE regularly, He is not my friend on FACEBOOK. This e-mail came OUT OF THE BLUE.
You may be interested to hear what it was about but first I must say that his very EXTENSIVE EDUCATION did not install in him the usual COMMON COURTESIES a LADY expects. He addresses me as CELIA, no DEAR or MS LADYGARDEN OR MRS LADYGARDEN. I mean we have never been introduced, I have never met him or written to him but if I did I would not start my COMMUNICATION with ‘ED’ because I was brought up to have MANNERS. He even signs off as ‘ED’, no YOURS FAITHFULLY or YOURS SINCERELY, oh no just ‘ED’
Is this designed to install a NOTION of CHUMMINESS? Is he trying to be CASUAL? Or FRIENDLY? Is this what we must now expect from our POLITICIANS? I don’t think TONY BENN would have e-mailed me in this casual manner.
Anyway what ‘ED’ wanted, was to know if me and my family were BETTER OFF under this government and there were two BUTTONS to press, one marked YES and one marked NO. He said WAGES have gone down by £1600 a year under this government. Looking at ED’S picture, I don’t think he has had to go to any FOOD BANKS lately!
After the sign off ‘ED’, was another BUTTON marked DONATE……..
Well quite clearly I had misunderstood this message. ‘ED’ obviously was feeling THE PINCH!
He was asking me for a LOAN!
In CONTRAST I received a delightful POSTCARD from my granddaughter, addressed DEAR GRANNY and SIGNED with love. She hasn’t the benefit of a PRIVATE EDUCATION but at HOME and at her STATE SCHOOL she has been taught MANNERS and COMMON COURTESIES.
I WILL be RESPONDING to my granddaughters POSTCARD but I WILL NOT be PUSHING EDD BALLS BUTTONS!
