Subject: 2011 Departmental Christmas Card Directive

This year's seasonal missive from the Department of Social Scrutiny will, for the first time, be enabled by your colleagues at the Ministry of Festive Observance.
This means that, unlike previous years where individual Departments were responsible for sending out cards unilaterally, MoFO is at long last able to enforce the Government's policy on Multilateral Minor Package Reciprocation or MMPR.

Under MMPR, cards will only be sent in response to a successful application for festive communication being received by MoFO before the end of the tax year in which Christmas occurred and claims for back-dated Seasonal Felicitations must now be made within seven years of the final hour of the last day of the fiscal year in which a qualifying Christmas occurred.

An example of one of the new forms is reproduced below.

Statement to the nation

DoSS updates its name and logo

In line with the coalition’s remit to “save money, whatever the cost”, it is with great pride that we can announce the Department is amalgamating with the Ministry for Auditing the Apocalympics. The new department will be known as the Department of Social Scrutiny and the Apocalypse - DoSSA.

We have commissioned a new logo - right - which, we think, mirror the new responsibilities of the Department while still in the traditional DoSS Pantone colours of Selsey Flapjack and Vichy Whisper. The logo integrates an Olympic Torch and a large bolide into the familiar DoSS eye device.

Copies of the new logo are available to all right-thinking newspaper editors. But not the News of the World, because they were on holiday at the time.
