5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

The British Government's wired credentials took another rib-cracking blow to the midriff today after ISP, SupaNet, claimed Downing Street wouldn't accept letters to the Prime Minister via email.

This sorry state of affairs has been confirmed by a Downing Street spokesman who said that there simply wasn't the staff or resources to handle correspondence by email.

The spokesman added that such a service would be up-and-running "in the near future".

SupaNet decided to take a pop at the Government after being unable to pass on the opinions and views of its punters wishing to voice their opinion about the fuel crisis.

The ISP tried to send the emails to Downing Street but received the following notification instead: "After consulting with the department that deals with correspondence to the Prime Minister they inform me it is policy that all the correspondence should be sent in hard form to Number 10.

"As I mentioned to you we are unable at present to deal with any enquiries via e-mail due to lack of resources. The address is, 10 Downing Street, London SW1A 2AA."

Or dovecote 10a if you're sending it by carrier pigeon. ®
