Now, after yesterday’s exciting arrival of e-mail from the former South African deputy president’s wife, I thought I was on to a good thing. I was in the course of preparing my reply when I received the reply from
who had also received an e-mail. So, I thought I’d google the e-mail address contained therein. What do I discover? Apparently she’s written to someone else too. Bloody fickle these wives of ex-deputy presidents of South Africa. I don’t reply immediately so they try someone else. Bang goes my multi-million bonanza. However, I am minded to reply from an appropriately anonymised e-mail address. So should I use
(a) the address I use to apply for football management jobs (I was turned down by Scotland with no reply but the FA engaged in a lengthy e-mail exchange)
(b) Eugene Terreblanche – a new account for the purpose
(c) Gene Hunt or
(d) someone else?
