The One That Wants To Bow Out In Style Like This. . .

A civil servant colleague of mine has left the building (a reccurring theme in my work-place at present) his 'Out of Office Assistant' now returns the following (sanitised) message when you send an email to his account:

'Fortunately I no longer work for XXXXX. I have escaped the Peoples' Socialist Republic of Britain and will be enjoying the benefits of a civilised country.'

He's off with his good lady wife to live in British Columbia, and I wish them the best of luck. It's an idea I am giving very serious consideration to.

Would the last person out please switch off the lights?

If he's ever on Vancouver Island, he'll find quite a number of kindred spirits (And fellow escapees from the EU insanity).
