David Cameron is my new best friend!

The spam filter on my email account is usually very effective. It is not often that spam gets through. It's also rare that genuine emails are filtered.

Earlier on I received an email from which might well have been erroneously identified as spam but mercifully wasn't:

£2 Million for little old socialist me? Well who'd have thunk it!

I am impressed that William Hague can find the time to pull himself away from the situation in the Middle East to process this claim. Such personal attention is laudable

Naturally this windfall won't change my lifestyle significantly. I might set aside enough to have Andrew Rosindell, our poltroon of an MP tarred and feathered... or is that a mark of ingratitude.

Well it made a change from the usual 419 scam email!

Actually you should be feeling a bit unlucky there Jams because yesterday a Mrs Reverend Juliano Ombaga of Nigeria offered me 10% of 500 million dollars just for allowing her unexpected inheritance to be processed through my account. So that's 50 million dollars just for doing an old lady (she's 82 apparently) a favour. Neat eh? I expect there may be a $1000 administration fee for me to pay first, of course, to let the transaction go ahead, but that's of no consequence when 50 million is on the way to me eh? Lucky or what?

Wow H you are in the money! Cameron is a skinflint by comparison!

A Doubtful Egg said...

So that's why the Tories are imposing so many cuts...

Francis Hunt said...

I bought the Brooklyn Bridge online last week. I've now written to the Mayor of New York giving him the details of how to pay the rent into my account ...

jams o donnell said...

Indeed Egg. He couldn't afford such largesse otherwise!

A sound investment Francis. May it be a sound pension plan!

James Higham said...

Was that in Nigeria, Jams?

Steve Hayes said...

Interesting e-mail addresses these government types have.

And I notice that even the banks are using gmail these days.

Löst Jimmy said...

Faith in this Government is obviously paying dividends. Lend us a fiver?

jams o donnell said...

I'm not ure where this one came from if it didn't come from Number 10 James!

Well that is true Steve. It clearly is of assistance to them theses days to keep a low key

Have a tenner Jimmy!

Oh... that one. Don't bother, Jams, I've already emptied the account.

Purely as a favor for Mr Hague. He gets from 10 to 25 % of the total, to be renegotiated in a personal meeting between us. I'm bringing a piece of lead pipe with me.

jams o donnell said...

Dammit Snoopy I WANTED that money!

Claude said...

As soon as you get the money, you're my new best friend, Jams.

jams o donnell said...

But of course... my largesse wlll be large Claude!
