I think that's the longest speech Oz has ever made.

Later that day Den,Nev and Moxey called round for a chat with Oz. Oz opened the door to his rooms and let them in. Nev nodded to Den who pursed his lips,glanced at Moxey and turned to Oz.

Oz: " Howay lads have a seat,what's up ,do you want a beer?"

Dennis: " Nah ,not just now.Oz we have a problem,we need to ask you a few things." Oz opened his eyes wide in surprise and looked at them all in turn.

Oz: " It must be serious if you're turning down a beer.From the look of you this could be an intervention eh?" He started to laugh then noticed the lads were all grim faced.

Dennis: " Aye it could be Oz. We need to know if there's something you're not telling us. Why did you mention the paparazzi ?"

Moxey: " Actually Den ,Barry told us it should be paparazzo if it's one bloke."

Dennis: " Moxey. Shut up. Oz what are you not telling us?"

Oz: " Den it's got nowt to do with you, it's none of your business."

Neville: " Shite ,now I know there's something up. Come on Oz what's none of our business?"

Dennis was looking closely at Oz and suddenly gave a big sigh.

Dennis: " I should have bloody known.Oz you stupid bollock. It's the tart,it's Vicky isn't it?"

Moxey: " In the dark secluded Northumbrian woods their relationship slowly burgeoned...."

Neville: " Moxey will you shut up ,this is serious."

Dennis: " Tell me it's not true Oz, not in the middle of this crisis,can't you keep it in your trousers lad?"

Oz: " Den, Den man it's not like that.Vicky is really worried about Kenny ,we all know he's in a bad way. All I did was offer a bit comfort."

Dennis: " Shit Oz I knew it.You dozy bugger what'll happen if Ofelia finds out?"

Moxey: " So you slipped her a length?"

Oz: " No Moxey . Den there's nowt to find out. I promise you .It wasn't like that,but mind that photographer could have had a bloody field day. Big Baz got hold of him and burned the film 'cos he'd taken a picture of me giving her a hug. That's all. Anyway we're trying to find out who was behind it. Someone obviously followed them to Wooler and tipped off this paparazzo fellah."

Dennis: " So ,no harm done?"

Oz: " No Den. Rest easy on that . But it's obvious we could all be under surveillance. Anyhow lads, what's the verdict on where we go with this ?"

Neville: " I think we're up for it Oz.This is still an opportunity for us and we always were working toward a better future for us all even back in Dusseldorf, but ,and it's a big but. CWN have massive resources and we know they can play dirty."

Dennis: " See it's not just us now Oz, it's our families, see there's bairns as well. It's easy for Solly to say take the fight to them but how can we defend ourselves in the meantime?"

Moxey: " If I can just say I know it's no picnic having someone after you .I remember when Startup's lot were after me."

Oz : " No you're right of course. I think Solly was right about putting them on the back foot though.They won't be expecting it.Their weak spot is their public image. They'll be shit scared if the media get hold of the Nazi angle.Incidentally I think we might have just learned about a secret weapon.Wyman messaged me about his girl friend Mel.She told him that Kenny Brown is an FBI man on the inside so to speak. I would think if we have them on our side that adds to our resources doesn't it?"

Barry just walked into the room at this point.

Barry: " Sorry I'm late chaps .Can I just say even if we have the FBI on our side in the weeks it would take to get everything in place how many of the hard core would escape. Will we all have to be in witness protection?"

Oz : " Lads ,lads, I'm not saying that's what we have to do but we do have some aces in our hand have'nt we?"

Ross leaves Oz a message to contact him asap. He returns his call after his meeting with the lads .


Oz : " Ross you left a message earlier?"

Ross: " Afternoon Mr O- sorry Oz, I think it is better you see this rather than we talk over the line. Shall I come up to the house or will you call in here?"

Oz: " No, I'll come to the office. I need to get out of here for a while."



Ross: " So, here is the message for you, intercepted by us per your instructions, from FCO referring to the OED .The other one is from Gary Turnbull in Cuba.They both request your presence at a meeting at the FCO in a few days time. You will know some of the others attending, and there is little doubt something is about to hit the fan."
Oz looked at the messages .

Oz: " So Fraser is now a major player if the FCO are concerned ?" Ross was nodding in agreement.

Ross: " I understand that your original intel about his involvement with MButha's financial arrangements is only part of the picture. Fraser can implicate the person hinted at in the gossip I have been listening to."

Oz: " We ,that is Kenny, told us Fraser was behind the coercion of the UN official . This is the guy who funneled the spondoolicks to MButha."

Ross: " But now we are led to understand the UN official was not alone." Oz looked up from the messages.

Oz: " But why do they want me to go to London?"

Ross: " I would say since you and your colleagues have resigned your OED posts there is reason to ask for what used to be called a "leaving interview".

Oz : " That's obviously bollocks .It's just an excuse."

Ross : " Indeed. My guess is they want as much of Fraser's background as possible .When a peer of the realm or a prominent government figure is involved in a potential scandal ,heaven and earth will be moved to ensure it does not happen."

Oz: " Oh,so that's what this is about.But why me?"

Ross: " Mr O-sorry, again ,Oz. Because you are the new Kenny Ames and someone who knows Fraser. The rumour mill says there will be a rapid response and maybe an extraction from his current location in the Cape Verde islands."

Oz: " Bloody hell .Have I time for a shower?"

Oz is walking back from the office when he hears a familiar voice shouting his name. He turned and saw Chrissy and Tatiana.

Chrissy: " So what are you doing down here in daylight hours?"

Oz: " Sorry pet I didn't see you ,I'm on my way back from Ames Security . I have been summoned to head office so to speak...."

Tatiana: " Is it bad news Oz ,you don't look very happy?"

Oz: " Probably when it involves bloody Fraser. Anyway how are things with you?"

Chrissy: " Going well and getting better since we pushed on with the extensions.Order books full for six months after the opening in August .We think the Scandinavians and Germanic people will make us billions. They are all so depressed."

Tatiana: " It is the very dark tv programmes they watch and long may it continue.Can I ask you Oz how are the women in your life?"

Oz: " You won't get prizes for tact and diplomacy petal."

Tatiana: " I am concerned for you and for them.These are big recent changes in your life. Barry and me, we know about these things. Is Ofelia going to come over with Sofie?"

Oz: " The last I heard she said no .Her mother is ill and she says there is no one else to help. Sofie is growing up,she'll be two in a few months.I keep in touch with Sara Victoria by e mail ,her gaffer isn't too keen on me making regular visits."

Chrissy: " Has there been any change in Kenny's health since I asked you last?"

Oz: " Nah, he keeps on keeping on Vicky says.He still takes an interest in what we all are doing over here but she says it's still just a matter of time. One of the new doctors in Newcastle told her there might be a treatment that could help, but not to get her hopes up."

Chrissy: " So sad when he has all that enthusiasm ."

Tatiana: " There is an old Russian saying and it means the spirit he is willing but the body he is not."

Oz: " Aye .Well there you go. When you see Barry can you tell him the lads are planning on a few drinks tonight. Just for a change you know?" They all laughed as Oz made his way back up the hill to the house.



Oz had finished sending emails when he heard Barry's 4x4 arrive. There was a long one to Ofelia explaining his forthcoming trip to London and asking after her mothers health.Another to Sara Victoria warning that he would be out of the country for a while, and a similar holding action sent to Vicky at Wooler .

Barry: "Howay Oz.Don't hide in the office.Get yourself down here, some of your serfs and slaves have things to report."

Oz: " Haddaway and shite Taylor ."

Moxey: " They're your new solicitors Oz?"

Dennis: " Here mate have a beer ,just for a change eh?"

Oz: "Aye I saw the lasses down near the marina and told them we'd be having a few drinks. I'll tell you what I told them.There's been a message, I guess partly to do with us telling Gary we're retiring from OED ,but mainly I reckon it's because of the problem known as Ally Fraser.If he spills his guts there will be a shitstorm involving not just the UN guy but now it seems there is a Peer or a Minister been naughty as well."

Dennis: " So why are they asking you to go over there?"

Barry: " I would put money on they want your help with Ames Security Services and first hand knowledge of the man himself."

Oz: " Very close Barry, there has been the suggestion he may be extracted from Cape Verde .I think that means special forces or at least the Expendables. We do have friends in the area of course"

Neville: " Pru says there a lots of operations like this that we never hear about. Rather them than me. "

Dennis had been looking at Oz while they were chatting.

Dennis: Another beer kiddah?"

Oz : " Aye Den ,great."

Dennis: " Oz we're all your mates and we go back years,and I have to ask you.Is this what you really want. There's trouble every way you turn ,if it's not your lass Ofelia, it's Kenny's health, now the problem with Fraser ?"

Oz: " I know what you're getting at Den. I thought it was managable at first and I am learning how to get others to help,but this recent stuff is down to me and only me. Ask me again in a months time."

Oz was making his way from the OED offices in Croydon to an office in the FCO in Westminster. The message left at OED was brief he was to take the car provided and meet with Heather Lane before joining a Working Party hastily convened to address the Fraser problem.

Heather: " Hello Oz ,are you ready for this?"

Oz: " As ready as I'll ever be.How long has it been called the Fraser Problem?"

Heather: " I know what you mean, but that's Whitehall. The real problem is you-know-who at the UN and his buddy Lord thingy. "

Oz: " So he won't get the sack either?"

Heather: " I think the pointy heads will wait to see if we can retrieve Fraser successfully. If it all goes tits up then we may see one or both falling on their swords."

Oz: " When did they find out about Ally being moved?"

Heather: " Actually I think it was your guys first, I believe from something that came via Prince Stefano de Montecatini. What a mouthful, do you call him Stefano?"

Oz: " See Heather, I'm still getting used to being at the centre of this particular information highway. Yes we call him Stefano, and I remember him as a bit of a ladies man in Marbella a long time ago .But his intel is usually impeccable according to Derek."

Heather: " Ah here we go ,see those two, the thin one is called Greig,I know him . They're the ones we need on our side.They can rustle up spec ops if needed. Let's get seats near the coffee. Come on Oz."

As Oz and Heather made their way across the room to a huge table laid out for the meeting he heard someone shout his name.He turned to see a slim dark haired woman in a dark suit , knee length skirt and black stockings.

Oz: " Good grief.How are you Sarah?"

Sarah: " Long time and definitely no see ,you brute.Come here." She moved quickly, pulled his head down and kissed him on the mouth. Oz was not prepared for this and when he came up for air it was to see a very surprised Heather , and Sarah laughing out loud.

Oz: " Bloody Norah woman I'm here for .... not for ....." He spluttered." What's the big idea? "

Sarah: " If it's to do with the UN guy and Mr MButha then I'm due to sit in with my boss. You'll buy me lunch maybe, after all you let me down over Aspen and not even a 'phone call ?"

Heather: " Oz you never cease to amaze me. She's the PA for a certain under secretary. Did you know ?"

Oz: " No,I haven't seen her since our trip to Arizona ,must be fifteen years ago or thereabouts. Dear me. She was Jeffrey Graingers PA in those days, and was a huge help in getting that bugger to rights."

Heather: " Ok Oz, I think we're starting .Try to stay awake, these things can get really boring. It would help if you put Sarah Kennedy out of your mind ,for now."




At lunch Oz was collared by Sarah while Heather was whisked away by Greig to discuss the logistics of getting herself and Oz to Cape Verde and back perhaps with an unwilling passenger on the return leg.Or not depending on circumstances.
