Forget the Costa Notta-so Mucha and the Alsuave: owing to the unusually glorious English summer this year, thousands of us decided to holiday at home. Included in this domestic throng was Westminster City Council’s communications team.
The Westminster Wags have sent seaside postcards of their sojourn to senior managers in an effort to drum up stories over the holiday season. One postcard shows a seaside donkey with the strapline “Give us the stories and we’ll do the donkey work” and another shows a strong wind lifting ladies’ skirts with the tagline “Help us get a little more exposure this summer”.
At least the Diary can console itself with the fact that in the silly season someone has managed to make an ass of themselves.
