“There are methods we haven’t used yet of course,” Number 2’s assistant suggests. But that wasn’t very nice of Potter, what’s he got against his old colleague? As for Number 6 making the act of putting on his dressing gown appear as a gesture of defiance. Well yes, but perhaps Number 2 is over interpreting the action. Perhaps Number 6 has simply had a bad night, or more likely he’s fed up with the woman prattling on about the weather, and making an announcement about a great new competition which has been announced by the local council, your local council democratically elected by the citizens. No doubt that rubs salt into the wounds when he thinks back to when he stood as candidate for the position of the new Number 2! Anyway I think it’s the loudspeaker he’s annoyed at, because later he puts it in the refrigerator bringing peace and quiet to his cottage!
Be seeing you
