      • Alan: That's just what I needed first thing on a Friday morning, isn't it? A dead dwarf!

      • Chief Whip: (to Alan) If it were up to me you'd become an unfortunate hiccup in the otherwise downward trend of the unemployment statistics. The Prime Minister, however, seems to rather like you. I suppose even the greatest postwar leader this country has known is entitled to one lapse of judgement.
