I am relieved to be able to inform you that today seems to have been a relatively quiet one in Albia, with the local bulletins focusing almost entirely on the fallout from yesterday's events (O Tempora, O Mores). This has chiefly involved reporting the insistence of the "..............." (unfortunately, the original Albian word for the post equivalent to the British "Leader of the House" reads in English as a most appalling term of abuse(i)) that responsibility for security in the Grevvitren be handed over immediately to the Secret Police. The Leader of the House went on to say that those hitherto responsible for security- frequently derided for their ridiculously anachronistic uniforms(ii) - will be dealt with in the usual Albian manner, just as soon as pit can be dug and some poisonous snakes located.
(i) Though, interestingly, I hear that this very term is one very frequently used in England to describe the current Leader of the House there.
(ii) Uniforms which involve fingerless gloves, baggy grey trousers and jumpers, and pastel yellow snoods(iii)
(iii) Local historians tell me that the uniforms were designed in the mid 1980's.
