Try to cast your memory back to a time when you had something labelled, with your name on it. A slipper bag, a uniform gabardine mac, a school locker, perhaps? In all likelihood, there is probably one commonality - you were a child.

Being a responsible adult means that you no longer require sticky labels to guide your passage through life. You have matured beyond the well-meaning apron strings of your mother and can make your own decisions.

Unless you are a member of the current Cabinet, that is.
