*John closed the heavy wooden door of Speaker's House behind him and headed straight for the whisky. Speaker's whisky, reminded himself, because he's still Speaker, despite the best efforts of the government.

How he'd managed to make it through the vote and reading out the results without hexing the entire government front bench into a collection of small rodents and toads he'd yet to work out, but he had. He'd kept his cool and he was still here. He was still Speaker.

Tomorrow he'd have to go to his constituency - with the election less than two months away every moment had to count - but for tonight, just for a while, he could afford to sit and try to relax. There was nothing the bastards could to him tonight.

John collapsed into one of the overstuffed armchairs (Speaker's armchairs) and took a long sip from his drink.*
