Brown scraps his email address

It took a long time and and a campaign by a guy I don't particularly like, to get the Prime Minister to have an email address. OK, so he probably wouldn't read them himself, but at least you had somewhere to send rants etc. Well not anymore. The contact page of the Number 10 website says
Email Number 10

We have decided at this time that it is important to take another look at the E-mail Number 10 service to ensure that it meets the same high standards as the other content and communication measures that the website delivers.

Unfortunately, this means that we will be unable to replace the service as quickly as we had hoped, but we aim to have it up and running as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Pretty poor show really, I mean it's just a mailbox, it's not like email hasn't been around for over 30 years now is it?

Bugger! Where am I gonna send my late-night, alcohol-fuelled, sleep-deprived rants now? I guessI could go on Yahoo Answers to wind up the students, but it's not quite the same.

Must have been all those phishing e-mails he got from banks .....

Pulling up the drawbridge....

Dizzy, get the pointless, mendacious venal cunts to forward the email to my iPhone. I would happily respond in an honest and (not quite so) impartial manner...

Sorry send all emails to flash Gordon Saviour of the world.

That message is months old now. But translated out of Government-speak, it means Andy Burnham was so upset by the uncouth messages the PM was getting that his eyeliner ran. They just didn't conform to his particular standard of taste and decency, you see. So you won't be able to email the PM until you learn to send only nice polite messages telling him how much you love the Supreme Leader.

Ah but dizzy it's all part of Grodoom solipsistic existence...if he receives no complaints then no-one is complaining and he just gets on with the job...of fucking everybody over.

I was reading of a chap who sent the snot goblin an e-mail at the parliament.uk address, but only got an “Out of Office” reply. One can dream I suppose.

Question of time, really.

Seems perfectly fair to me, depending on what they come up with. What's the point in just having a mailbox? It's like sending emails to those info@ addresses - you know that no-one is reading them, so why are they there? For show?

I've been asking Downingstreet on Twitter for weeks when the email would be back. They keep telling me they are working on it and it will be back soon!
