Sutler: Gentlemen, you have had four hours, you had better have results. Mr Creedy?
Peter Creedy: The Bailey area is quarantined, and all significant witnesses have been detained.
Sutler: Good. Mr Etheridge?
Brian Etheridge: A recording device was found wired into the central emergency broadcast system. The DCD was Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.
Sutler: Add it to the blacklist. I never want to hear that music again.
Etheridge: Yes, sir. We also doubled our random sweeps and are monitoring a lot of phone surveillance, indicating a high percentage of conversation concerned with the explosion.
Sutler: Mr Dascombe, what are we doing about that?
Roger Dascombe: We're calling it an "emergency demolition". We have spin coverage on the network and throughout the InterLink, and several experts have been lined up to testify against the Bailey's structural integrity.
Sutler: I want Prothero to speak tonight on the dangers of these old buildings and how we must avoid clinging to the edifice of a decadent past. He should conclude that the New Bailey will become the symbol of our time and the future that our conviction has rewarded us. Mr Heyer?
Conrad Heyer: Our surveillance cameras captured several images of the terrorist, though the mask obviously makes retinal identification impossible. We also managed to get a photo of the girl that Creedy's men were detaining.
Sutler: Who is she, Mr Finch?
Eric Finch: Not sure, yet, sir, but we're working on several leads.
Sutler: Anything else?
Finch: We located the fireworks launch and found traces of the explosives used at both sites. Unfortunately, it appears that despite the massive amount of sophistication, these devices were homemade with over-the-counter chemicals, making them very difficult to trace. Whoever he is, Chancellor, he is very good.
Sutler: Spare us your professional annotations, Mr Finch. They are irrelevant.
Finch: Apologies, Chancellor.
Sutler: Gentlemen, this is a test. Moments such as these are matters of faith. To fail is to invite doubt into everything we believe, everything that we have fought for. Doubt will plunge this country back into chaos, which is the last thing we want, and I will not let that happen. Gentlemen, I want this terrorist found, and I want him to understand what terror really means. England prevails!
Party leaders: England prevails.
