Tape 1 – scene 2

“He’s not happy.” “That’s an understatement.” “He rang you?” “Last night…” “Said he’d dig up the dirt.” “Who’d listen to him, only a go between. I wouldn’t worry.” “What’s happening at your end?” “It’s not pretty. ” “Bet there’s a few running for cover.” “No one’s making eye contact, if you know what I mean.” … Continue reading

Tape one – Scene 1 – Action

The Truth, the whole truth…..

“We need seven billion.” “Crap! that’s a lot of moolah. F***ing hell we only have €14 billion. You’re asking me to play silly buggers with regulations.” “We’re already in breach… 7 billion isn’t a lot if you say it fast. We’ll call it bridging.” “When will you pay it back?” “Never you clown.
