SUBJECT: New Appointment
I trssust your well. Listen I’m just art a gatheringt in London, and who shouild I run into but Toby Young? I have just been talking to him now, and hre told m that hes at a bit of a loose end at the moment. He asked if there was anthing going at the moment, and seeing him reminded me that we aer in need of a new lay member of the council, and in particular a chiar of the equalitty and diversity committe,.,
I thing he wouldf definitely be ideal. Hes got a caustic wit but on top of that, he tells me he has JUST finished a term of service on no less than thre Office for Students. THe OfS itself! That to me is exactly what we need at LuVE-U. WAhat do you think?
PS. Can you please get me Langleys No. 8 next Christmas. Thar Gordon’s gin you got me doesnt have an affect at all.

Sorry, I was sound asleep when you sent that email, as I always am well before 3AM. I trust the night was a good one and that you’re in good enough condition for the next Council meeting, which is in an hour.
I can’t say I’m familiar with Toby Young, but Hewlett has made me aware of some of the recent press coverage of him. He’s a big fan of a Hugh Genix? I don’t know, Hewlett sounded quite tired when I phoned him, but I get the impression that Young is clearly a public figure of great prominence and precisely what we need. As ever I trust you to make a meritocratic appointment, so go right ahead.
