The leaking of an obscure and third-rate politician's memo to his civil servants reveals like nothing else the debilitating burden of deranged narcissism. Liam Byrne's (who?) memo informs civil servants, in effect, that Byrne regards himself as the most important person in the world, and that they are obliged to pander to his ego.
This is a delusion shared by most politicians. Even when being introduced to the Sovereign, they will glance over her shoulder to see if there is anyone more important behind her.
However, Byrne neglects to mention the time at which he prefers to take a dump. This is an oversight on his part, as no doubt it now requires a civil servant to sit in the ministerial toilet and warm the seat all day in anticipation. If he could instruct his civil servants as to the fifteen minute 'window' in which he will evacuate his bowels, no doubt staff efficiencies can be realised.
