Quite apart from the surprise letter from the Inland Revenue on Saturday, apologising for the loss of both your personal and financial information you may well receive a second letter from the Labour Party, offering to return the handsome donation, made in your name to deputy leader Harriet Harman or unknown other members of the front-bench team in the past.
Thanks to a Sky News investigation, office-worker and loyal party-member, Mrs Numismatist of Margate, discovered that in an uncharacteristic and absent-minded fit of generosity, she had donated £10,000 to a needy member of the Cabinet and she was delighted to be informed that the money was to be returned in the same brown manilla envelope with her name and address, written clearly on the back.
Asked what prompted such a sizeable donation to a political party, Mrs Numismatist replied that she couldn't remember but that she thought that she might have done it several times!
Ed: Can truth be stranger than fiction? You tell me?!
