Love labor law? Hate Xmas?

We have just the seminar for you

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

We're delighted to announce that Settec - "considered today as one of the main players in training business", and offering "specialized seminars cover topics such as defensive driving, first aid, ergonomics..." - has organised a full-steam five-day session in sunny Cairo for those of you interested in Labor and Social Security Laws.

It also helps if you hate Xmas, as the emailed flyer demonstrates:

Fancy an exciting Xmas?

That's right - you can forget baby Jesus, tinsel, Santa and Xmas lunch down the pub because you, matey, are off to Egypt for a "highly participative" brainstorm with fellow fortunates.

Seriously, though, we cannot in all honesty imagine anyone's boss dispatching him or her to a labour law jolly in Egypt on Xmas day. On the other hand, as I write, Reg big cheese Linus "Fish Fingers" Birtles is on the blower trying to book two cattle-class charter tickets to Cairo for the 24 December. We will no doubt discover who has incurred his wrath in due course.

In the meantime, a Reg shirt for anyone who can provide photographic evidence that they too were obliged to miss turkey and stuffing for lamb kebab and mint tea in the Land of the Pharaohs. ®
