Eh? Why?

Got mine in the post 2 months ago, the old trout couldn't even be arrsed to sign it herself and there wasnt a single kiss.

Found a stack of them in the post pigeonhole, offered them to the blokes, threw them in the bin at the end of the night as no one was interested.

Found mine in the bottom of my intray a few weeks ago, can't help thinking what ever it cost to produce was wasted.

What do we estimate £50-60,000?

I think the invitations where exceptionally well organised.

Whoever was behind that really should get an OBE, or a nice shiney Aston Martin. Or something.

Agreed the organisationa and attention to detail has been second to none !!!

Clear policy on pay and transport, clear communcations etc etc.

Having said that the Garden Party was a bit of treat, despite no Queeny.

Lets face it could been worse Des or Gordon could have turned up to thank us !!!!!! :twisted:

haven't seen one but if:

50000 birthday cards
printed full colour both sides on 350gsm silk
creased for folding a4 to a5

£2500

if somebody paid more than that then they've been ripped off.
