A reporter is interviewing David Benson-Pope, former Minister for the Environment, as he leaves his office carrying briefcases and papers. He cannot answer, however, as he has a tennis ball stuffed into his mouth. Refers to Benson-Pope's being relieved of his portfolios because of attempts to cover up the truth about the part he played in the wake of the dismissal of Madeleine Setchell from her job in the Ministry for the Environment. The tennis ball relates to a previous embarrassment for David Benson-Pope when he was accused of stuffing a tennis ball into the mouth of a pupil when he was a teacher.
