UK Government bulk buying Filofax Organisers

To some of you it might come as a surprise that David Cameron's government are bulk buying Filofax organisers to issue to Whitehall civil servants.

However, in these times of austerity measures and economic downturn the Chancellor George Osborne turned down Whitehall mandarin's requests to equip civil servants with iPads and other fancy tablets.

Philofaxy in conjunction with Filofax UK met last week to decide on what models would suit which Civil Service grades. Steve an former long serving UK Civil Servant himself was well placed to assist Filofax UK to decide on Filofax organiser recommendations to be put forward to the Treasury Office supporting this return to pen and paper initiative.

I suspect by the time you read this post the lorry load of Apex's will be delivered to Whitehall....

    1. George likes to get noticed... he likes to be different to those other boys from Eton... so just to spite his chums Boris and 'call me Dave' he went for the canary yellow one...

  5. I'd love it to be true..... but there's a poisson like smell about this because 1. It would make sense 2. It would save money 3. It would just be so cool 4. Filofaxes would solve the transparent folder leaking indiscreet issues problem.
    Love the idea!

    - Red (Washi) Tape)
    - Yellow Washi tape saying "Police Line - Do Not Cross", and
    - Medals and Ribbons for dubious achievements
