An annoyingly

Eddie Mair | 16:01 UK time, Tuesday, 16 December 2008

busy afternoon. The News Gods have smiled upon us...in a way they're unlikely to over the festive season. We're doing our best to make it all fit into an hour...plans changing by the moment. Liz has gone to get tea. George is doing his first shift as deputy editor (and is doing rather well) and Amanda is keeping us all in shape with her rod of iron. How she got it past security I have no idea.

    I'm waitiing to see if we find out more about the story from the midnight news last night 9and it is on the BBC website if you look for it really hard) about the security of Internet Explorer having been seriously compromised, with 10,000 or more websites adversely affected and experts advising that it would be a good idea to use something else until Microsoft can come up with a patch to deal with the problem.

    Maybe that isn't important enough for a PM report, though.

    I see. Being kept an eye on - by Amanda.

    I hope - those world weary gimlets cast in you and your colleagues direction are just as thorough as those who were charged to keep an eye on someone in the States - who seems - allegedly - to have behave less than well.

    If so - it appears there is not much you CANNOT do.

    I wonder how a real rogue would act if they were being kept under close survelliance?

    Maybe he or she would start actually telling the truth for once and behaving well. How annoying(ly)

    Sorry David (7) - rushed out then didn't rush back. Yes, indeed - the Mystery Cat of T.S. Eliot.
