THE PHONE HACKING SCANDAL
A typical conversation?
Prescott calls Dorneywood.
"Hello, is that the butler?"
"Yes, can I help Sir?"
"Hello Rab. It's John here. I'll be at Dorneywood this weekend. I'd like some croquettes on the lawn."
"Very good, Sir. And would Sir like the the newspapers delivered to his room?"
"Yes please. But make sure they are yesterday's."
"Yes, I find they normally include a fish supper."
"Very good Sir."
"Oh and one final thing."
"Please don't use 'Sir' all the time."
"No, try practising 'Lord'. I'm getting used to living like one."
