Mr Howard has a new job

Mr Howard has a new job

If you were worried Michael Howard would have too much time on his hands since stepping down as the leader of the Conservative Party, fret not, he's got himself a little part time job, The Times has the details:

MICHAEL HOWARD, the former leader of the Tory party, is to become the chairman of the European arm of a corporate espionage company set up by former agents of the CIA, MI5 and Soviet Intelligence.

His appointment by Diligence, which employs several former members of the SAS and SBS, is the first job Mr Howard has accepted since he announced after the partys defeat last year that he would not be contesting his seat at Folkestone & Hythe at the next election. Mr Howard, who is expected to be paid a six-figure salary, told The Times that he had been contracted to work a minimum of half a day a week, and insisted that it would not interfere with his constituency duties.

This is my website The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first moved to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a regular visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and things, and I know it was a useful reference for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
