"...Theres a new wind blowing they say, its gonna be a cold, cold one"
Rumours sprung from nowhere (i.e. the BBC web site, just like any other day) and blew through the office picking up litter and momentum as they grew into a preposterous whirlwind of ridiculous speculation:
"there'll be no more overtime"
"the parking permits will be withdrawn"
"all new posts across the county have been frozen"
"they're going to sack us for a week and then give us our jobs back"
"they'll make us work till we're eighty"
"they'll have to cancel the AwayDay"
