Another secret document has been photograhed being carried along Downing Street. “To be honest, this one’s got us stumped.” said a senior official “Short of putting papers in our pockets, we’re powerless.”
Now though, Harold inventor Dr Rachel Guest has come up with a novel solution which she hopes will be considered by Ministers.
“Desperate times, desperate measures.” says Dr Guest, who’s worked on the problem for two years. “Theresa May says it’s foolish to reveal her strategy to EU negotiators, but that approach could be undermined if any of them have a camera and know how to get to Downing Street.”
Dr Guest says her breakthrough came whilst watching a James Bond film.”007 was signing for the usual guns and gizmos and I noticed they were being packed into something Q called “a brief case”. It was my ureka moment; since then I’ve been refining the concept, so confidential papers now fit where guns and bombs usually go.”
Simply closing notebooks used by Ministers and officials is not a viable option, says Dr Guest. “Most of them have doodles of Michael Gove dangling from a gallows on the cover. I know mine has.”
