If you’re looking for some respite from the incessant BBC News 24 and Sky News attempts to outdo each other with ‘Breaking News’…

“So John, reports coming in now of further suspicious characters lurking round Glasgow Airport - what can you tell us?”

“Well Bill, details are scant but I can now confirm that I too have heard that there are rumours of reports of several individuals carrying what looks like bottles with a liquid and/or liquids contained therein and walking in a highly suspicious manner on the cracks in the pavement. John?”

Mr Blue: “Boys, boys, let’s stick to the agenda. Now what went well?”
Mr Brown: “The suits and glasses were pretty cool?”
Mr Blue: “And what could’ve gone better?”
Mr White: “Shoulda gone with plan B? Edinburgh?”
Mr Blue: “Yeah, right enough. I mean… Glasgow… what were we thinking?”
