Thanks to an ignored Freedom of Information request and a fiver we slipped to the editor’s niece who’s a whizz with computers, we’ve somehow uncovered the rather embarrassing exchange between David Cameron and his local Councillor:
From: David Cameron, PM [email@example.com]

Cc: G-Dawg [firstname.lastname@example.org] Subject: Saving money
Just a quick note to ask if you’ve explored all the options re: these possible ‘cuts’ to local services. Some of them would be counter-productive and actually cost money!
How about bulk-buying photocopy paper and paper clips? An old Uni chum says there’s savings there which wouldn’t affect service delivery. Maybe turn the thermostat down a degree or two?
Making cuts to vital local services won’t play well at the next local elections!
See what you can do, there’s a good chap.
