iPhone : Wife was going through some old books today and found this in an Oxford student union guide. Sounds as much of a Lib Dem as Priti Patel

TweetDeck : On the subject of BBC managementspeak, I wrote this in Times Diary six months ago (though think the director in question was James Purnell). Replenisher-facing content must be platform-agnostic and the lake of content is not vertical sound like titles for W1A episodes
