Guido Dishwater sank back into the soft yielding seats of the Daimler and closed his eyes. Five minutes of peace and then they could finish this. He was getting a bit long in the tooth. He opened his eyes and met the sympathetic gaze in the rear view mirror. ‘You know how many I’ve counselled, Fret?’

Fret, the long suffering driver to the great and not so good shook his head.

‘You don’t like talking do you, Fret?’

A nod.

‘Worried about being recorded?’

A shrug.

Guido pulled himself into a better posture. ‘Seven. Seven Prime Ministers, seven failed careers. They all think they were unlucky, you know? All believe they had more to give. Silly sods.’ The factotum glanced towards the toilet block, briefly wondering if this one was peeing, crying or punching the living daylights out of his security detail. ‘They all see themselves as indispensable. It’s a kind of Louis XIV mentality. L’Etat, c’est moi. Once that level of arrogance sets in, they’re toast.’ He sat up straighter. ‘Here he comes. Looks like tears. Better when they’re angry.’ He reached for the door handle and opened the door.

Norris Bojangles huffed into the empty seat and mimicked Guido’s slump. ‘Bloody ridiculous, Guido. A charade.’
