    Here’s the warning in full:
    ‘It has come to my attention that some rich people in Chipping Norton may be subject to criminal prosecution. I must remind you that this was never the intended purpose of any law or statute, and the government is preparing primary legislation to ensure that this destabilising situation will not occur again. In the meantime I must remind you that the combined net worth of these individuals makes media comment unlawful, and establishes their innocence beyond a reasonable doubt. I hope this clarifies the position.”

    I just hope all this unpleasantness is cleared up as soon as possible and these two wonderful young (middle aged) people with so much still to offer can get back to their normal jobs of running the country.
