Poor Isabella…

(Quentin Letts) – WOMAN OF THE WEEK: Isabella Fiore Brown, secretary to Bob Spink MP.

Owing to a foul-up at directory enquiries, Mr Spink’s office number was given to hundreds of people seeking the main number for Parliament.

Poor Isabella. Every time she prepared to type a letter, rrrrrring. Every time she sat down to have a cuppa, or open the mail, or tried to step outside to go to the loo, rrrrrring. From morning to night, the blower blew incessantly. Officials said there was nothing they could do.

Kafkaesque.

I am told that Isabella has remained polite throughout. She simply says life has been ‘a little frustrating’.

She deserves a large gin and Dubonnet.
