DIARY: JWT takes its seasonal parties very seriously

Christmas wouldn't have been Christmas if it wasn't for parties,

but we're not sure they know quite how to let their hair down over there

at J. Walter Thompson's offices in Berkeley Square.

Forget the reputed shagging on the bannisters at the Fallon party. No,

JWT went for the kind of strict disciplinarian policy that would do a

dominatrix proud. The memo announcing the agency's Crimbo party set out

enough dampners to douse the most ardent party flames. "Identify

yourself to security!" attendees were warned, and under no circumstances

was access allowed "via back door areas".

And, God forbid, if anyone was caught smoking in the disco area. The

mind boggles at the hysteria this could have caused.

If one too many had left a partygoer a bit worse for wear, tough.

There's no loitering here. "Building to be fully empty by 1am," barked

the memo with startling military precision.

Call the fun police. But we're sure a great time was had by all.
