    Camilla is visiting a refuge or something on either Leeson or Hatch St.

    It’s eerily quiet around here.

      There was a fierce whirl of helicopters in the past few minutes…

            More helicopters there. Maybe she’s just leaving NOW!
            I won’t go out. It’s raining.
            Sorry. This reporting lark is too hard.

            Go get yourself a nice tea. You deserve it. I’d say that was a hectic few mins for you.

            I can hear traffic again: the rain has calmed down.
            Thank feck. I can head out now and get me lunch.

            Now I know how Londoners felt during the Blitz.

    I don’t know why but I’d love a Motorhead cover band to perform the Ace of Spades on the steps but replace the title with ‘The Prince of Wales, the Prince of Wales’.

    do you know my dear Enda, if it wasn’t for my country’s imperialistic past this government building of yours would be a mud hut and not the fine pile you have now!
