the British ambassador was asked by a journalist what he'd like for Christmas
'' you're very kind'',he replied ''but in my position i can't accept gifts i'm afraid !''
so the journalist said '' of course,i understand . just speaking theoretically then - what would you really like ?''
the ambassador thought for a while then said,with a smile '' well- i am rather partial to a nice box of candied fruits ! ''

a week later,in the residency ,he was watching the news with his staff, when this same journalist came on -
'' this week we have been asking all the ambassadors what they would like for Christmas'' he said
the American ambassador said he'd like to see an end to the conflict in the middle east
the French ambassador wished for an end to starvation in Africa
the German ambassador prayed for cures for cancer and aids
the Britsh ambassador,however, would really like a box of candied fruit !''

Did the journalist have a tanned face and work for the Sun on Sunday?
