Microsoft workers are naive gun-toters, presumably

Don't bring your guns to town son

THIS JUST IN, people at Microsoft would think nothing about bringing a gun into the UK, or eating chips.

That's according to the BBC, the news organisation that has just posted a report into a guide given to American workers moving to Cambridge.

The BBC says that it includes the telling staffers that "narcotic drugs" and "firearms" are banned in the UK. We cannot disagree with this.

The guide then gets all homely and charming, and offers US workers, about to find themselves in Cambridge, infomation on what chp shops and pubs are.

"The usual American fast food outlets are spread around Cambridge but there are also takeaways or 'chippies', selling fish and chips, a national treat," it says.

"Pubs, or public houses, are much more than plain bars. They are often warm, homely places full of historical character (and characters!)."

We've asked Microsoft for a copy of the report. We are sure that it will provide us with it. Very sure.

Until it comes we are off to the ‘pub' for a ‘beer' before we go to the ‘chippie'. We are reluctant to put too much faith in the report until we see a copy, but there are a lot of home truths in it.

The NHS, for example, is described as being free, but not trouble free. It's "main disadvantage" says the guide, is that there can "occasionally be long waits for certain treatments". µ
