Mrs T shows that she knows what's what. Moreorless:
Dear Gordon Brown, she writes, I know the economy is in a mess, but that is no reason why you should take refuge in talking about s - e - x. The late Mr Trellis, bless him, never allowed adversity to tempt him from the path of virtue, well, apart from his magazine collection, which I believe was prompted by his artistic bent, for bent he truly was, the dear man.
So, please get a grip on yourself, take yourself in hand and rise to the occasion. You can do it.
Blodwen Trellis, Mrs, Widow.
PS If you are ever in North Wales, I would be very pleased to show you the local cromlech, a magnificent erection if ever there was one.
