"Here's the Fuckers," muttered Deputy Whip Gregor Corporal Punishment into the ear of his Chief, without moving his lips – Whips were learning to be far more circumspect in the Chamber, so many eyes, microphones, cameras – and the Chief Whip nodded imperceptibly: "the new ones are the ringleaders," he breathed, "the others just mereswine, but Votes nonetheless; we're going to move the goalposts and quickly, defenestration, turn the Fatuous Five into the Team of Two then separate, isolate, eliminate: Job Done!" and Punishment grunted, not picked up by the mics nearby, "ding the dree," he coughed into his shirt sleeve, while watching the far end of the Government benches, where his brother, Gilbert Capital Punishment, heard the voice in his earpiece, glanced towards him and nodded; suddenly the Member for Glasgow Govan leapt to his feet, waving his Order Papers and bellowing: "I Spy Strangers!" there was uproar and the Speaker, dwarfed by his Chair, leaned forward: "Order! Orrrrrder! Motion to Clear the House, those who Agree, say Aye!" and a roar of "Ayes!" swept through the Chamber, "those who disagree say No!" and only a couple of "Noes!" from Members who had been dozing until suddenly alarmed by the commotion, could be heard, "Clear the Galleries, Clear the House!" roared the Speaker, hastily gathering his Papers and wrapping his gown around himself as he swiftly left his podium and disappeared through the door behind his Chair; the Sergeant-at-Arms marched onto the floor of the Chamber and added to the clamour: "Clear the House!" while her Assistants ushered, pushed and shoved bewildered MPs out; "nicely done, Gregor," said the Chief and together the two Whips. joined by Capital, made their way to their Private Office – known jokingly as the Torture Chamber, to confront the three Members from the Beddingshire Constituencies and strip them of their dignity and their clothes - the two Punishments, Gregor being the Member from Glasgow Govan, played the parts of Bad Cop and Worse Cop to a Tee and it always got the desired result!
