I’m struggling to hear him, to catch exactly what he’s saying, his words coming through the wire, indistinct.
I lean forward, clamp the headphones tighter to my ears, concentrating hard.
The visuals look good though, promising, he’s leaning forward, a bubble of spit on his lips, excited.
Eager to walk away with her, kinky little sod
The girl’s doing a bang up job, I can feel his desire, his anticipation 100 yards away.
They’re moving out of sight,
Yeah, it’s happening, they’re doing a deal and it’s all on tape.
Well, they say politics is a dirty business, but what can I say, perhaps you shouldn’t start a moral clean up campaign, try and rubbish our man when you tastes are, now how can i put it, quite so specialist themselves.
I radio the girl, tell her to lose him, we’ve got everything we need through the wire.
Over and out.
