Overseas information filters more slowly.

“The Central Office of Information, … overseas government advertising and marketing campaigns, is estimated to have lost almost half its budget for this year, with warnings that staff will be cut by two-fifths.”

So guys don’t expect the normal six weeks turnaround on your letters or phone calls.

The Uk Government doom and gloom cuts are being cut and spliced to the barest syllable this morning. Expats have relied  heavily on the online information and websites to gleem data on the Uk blur for Pensions, health and general research.

Mr Ian Duncan Smith (Work and Pensions Secretary) and Osborne Esquire have reached a tentative decision  with him about introducing a universal credit – moving all benefits onto one system of payment over 10 years.

The Foreign Office has been hit as well. William Hague’s one solution is that they will use the media network of Twitter to relay information more cheaply. So all Expats will need to take up twitching of a different type to stay up to the trill of the tweets Twitter. Well all that drivel will be limited to a mere 140 characters – perhaps it will be launched in code or he may resort back to the old carrier pidgeons..coo coo.

You can tweet your comments to me @RosieReay if you haven’t fallen off your perch laughing.

Aside: The defence cuts are worrying though!
