DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
IT’S clearly much harder to locate a bomb in a metropolitan area than we’ve been led to believe by those drama queens over on – let’s just pick a show at random – NCIS. The guy from the Russian Embassy. The one going by the law enforcement given name of The Cuckoo?
Unrelated to his mental state, apparently. Yes, it’s to do with the bird, the cuckoo. Real name George Rogers, when he’s in Australia. Victor Morizov when he’s at home in, I believe, Kazakhstan. They’ve got him in a room tonight on Rush. Our coppers.
He’s waiting for his committal hearing, which could take ages for a normal person, but you just get the feeling this won’t be like that. Not when there’s a bomb out there somewhere. And not just a bomb. A dirty bomb.
Everyone’s very calm about it all, and you would be, it’s still very much an abstract thing at this point.
People can talk about enriched uranium until they’re yellow in the face, but it doesn’t mean much until they open up the back of the truck and there it is, ticking away. Will it be ticking? I have no
Fighting back: Samuel Johnson idea. This bomb storyline on Rush has been going on for ages. One thing we learn – targeted is a group called the Korean Magpies.
I was glad Leon (Samuel Johnson) decided to go to the union about losing his job. Kerry sacked him in a very heavy-handed way, quite apart from the flimsy technicality that gets him back in front of the computers. Did you see that episode? She whispered ‘‘ You’re fired’’ into his ear in a way that made me think if ever anything happened to Mark Bouris, Catherine Mcclements could just step right in to The Celebrity Apprentice, no audition required.
