Lady Agatha Bristol of the Foreign Office is back, as irascible as ever.

After a hard day at the office monitoring her farflung operatives, Lady Agatha (honored for her services to the nation) likes to kick back, as the colonials say, and enjoy a custard liqueur at Annie's Bar - but when "John Nnamdi" comes knocking, Lady Agatha puts duty before pleasure.

Dear Lady Agatha,

please i invited you for a business and if you are not ready to proceed,let me know.Do not insult my country again as that is not fair.

Best Wishes,

My dear Nnamdi,

Please do not get over-sensitive, old boy. I served for three years in Lagos and I only speak as I find. I once had to bribe someone just to purchase some decent tea!

Now please send us the documents relating to this transaction, as we could well be interested in ensuring you get what you deserve.

With best wishes,

My dear Nnamdi,

First things first, old boy.

Never - ever - threaten us again.
