Hot on the heals of his fantastic, incredible, unbelievable, Conservative-beating and amazing majority of, er, 9 in the recent Commons vote on 42 days detention, Prime Minister Gordon Brown decided to telephone a random British voter to join in the celebration.
At precisely 6.37pm, the Prime Minister telephoned central London resident Sarah Macaulay to discuss the passage of the bill, the weather, if that motor-mouth woman was going to win the Apprentice and what was for dinner.
The lady he telephoned, a Sarah Macaulay, who is also the Prime Minister's wife, takes up the story:
"I was thrilled to be picked out of the telephone directory and receive a telephone call from the Prime Minister.
"It was an honour and a privilege, especially given the fact that I hadn't spoken to him since breakfast. It's also nice to receive a phone call from a gentleman who doesn't enquire what it is like to sleep with the Prime Minister.
"We discussed niceties of the day, how the vote went, how our children John and James Fraser are, which graveyards that nice Ruth Kelly is next performing an exorcism in, the buy one get one free offers currently available at John Lewis where we have an expense account, and of course, the price of housing and petrol.
"All in all it was a lovely experience. I can't wait until my husband the Prime Minister gets home and I can tell him that I received a personal telephone call from the Prime Minister."
