    Other email device? D'you mean one of those B*berry thingeys? Or am I hopelessly out of touch with the technical world?

    However, frankly, yesterday's email is, (to borrow from elsewhere) today's virtual chip paper, isn't it?

    Hello all,

    Tony Blair launches a fresh attempt to engage the public in conversation about Labour's policies. We're seeking outa Labour council leader or equivalent who suffered badly at the local elections to see what they think about the new "Let's Talk" campaign and whether it will help to revive Labour's fortunes.

    On the trail of Hugo Chavez - Rob Broomby covers the final stage of the Venezuelan Presidents trip to London.

    And don't panic - but the stock market is falling - maybe all will be well by the time we come on air. Or maybe not.

    Not sure about the rest of the programme - we'll be going into a group hug shortly.

    Yours,


    Sequin.

    Is this a devious way to prevent us getting near to a radio?

    9:17pm, Tuesday

    The last newsletter I received was Friday's (titled Orange and Brown)

    (Polls email to double check - no new entries)
    (Views full header)

    Sent 1:42pm, arrived 1:58pm - and all but 20 seconds of that time was spent bouncing around the BBC's servers...

    Still no sign of either yesterday's or today's...

    I'm sure this is not a record for PM Newsletters but Monday's has just arrived down here on the sunshine coast of eastbourne, East Sussex on Wednesday 0725am.

    I assume Tuesday's will be along any day now

    Great programme. with first class presenters and reporters and keep on the SEN case please.

    Well, I'm glad I didn't follow your advice, Eddie, as two copies of Monday's newsletter arrived at 7:53 this morning! If I'd listened to you, I wouldn't have got any sleep, and would now be a cranky Fred, rather than a Fearless Fred :-)

    It's arrived twice here - 9.02 and 9.07 - is this a record he asks knowing it won't be but hey....

    Eddie...received Mondays newsletter at 8:25 this morning, TWICE, well done!

    Perhaps if you could write the Friday one now I could possibly get later today?

    Not only is the newsletter lost, but so are postings on the thread about the newsletter. Have the mods gone on a Gap Year too?

    Yep. I got two Monday newsletters this morning. Is this in some way connected with the fact that I tried twice yesterday to post, and received an error message, yet the post is now there twice?

    Well, the Newsletter finally made its way from Eastbourne (East Susex) to rural West Sussex. It must have hitched a lift. Who knows where it's headed now - on to Fiona (Surrey) or Jonnie (Bournemouth) perhaps?

    I wished it Bon Voyage as it headed off again. It was such a nice newsletter, so well spoken and polite. A real credit to its creator.

    It's here in Suffolk! In duplicate. Arrived 1148. Oh lucky me! On it's way to Lady Penelope (N. Norfolk) perhaps?
