GOVERNMENT SECRET LEAKS OUT A really important government secret has recently been [blank_start]dug[blank_end] up about the relationship between Mr Barnes, the Minister for Education and his secretary Miss Bartlett. One government employee Mr Barnes confided [blank_start]in[blank_end] had enough of covering [blank_start]up[blank_end] the minister's secret affairs and [blank_start]levelled[blank_end] with the public. Barnes is thought to have [blank_start]papered[blank_end] over such allegations, being a father of three and a married man. "I have no idea who [blank_start]gave[blank_end] me away", admitted the minister last Wednesday morning, "but I'll have him [blank_start]spied[blank_end] on and soon I'll know."
