It's not all glamour being a press bod you know. Today was spent tracking down the loose ends of a story. Will the EU do this? Can the UK do that without the EU's say so sort of thing.
No one really knew so I was bouncing around trying to find out and then, in one 90 second phone call, no, the EU won't do that, yes, the UK can do it without permission.
There aren't that many things we can do without going cap in hand but this is one of them.
Doesn't matter what it was all about....just proof of that old maxim that it can take very little time for someone to give you the answer you seek but it can take a long time to find that person.
