OPERATIONS BOARD: OPERATION LONDON 26/03/05
From Major Jenny Maquire 10.35 28/06/06
Initial Assessment: Massive Problem. Big Benís in ruins, the damn craft is lying in the Thames and the government are being less than helpful. Plus the wretched thing was caught on 57 traffic cams. If anything dares emerge from inside, the first thing itís going to get is the Congestion Charge.
Containment hopeless, Iíd say. Annie?
From Staff Sergeant A Frederick 10.39 28/06/06
Not necessarily. I think we need to accept and move on. Sometimes things are what they appear to be and sometimes they arenít.
Iíd advise hanging back and risking eventual full disclosure. Wait and see Ė it may, just may, all be a clever hoax.
From Corporal J Frinkstein 11.23 28/06/06
Weíre liaising with the regular Army. We've reached the craft in the river. Thereís something inside.
From Major Jenny Maguire 11:38 28/06/06
Report please. What have you found?
From Corporal J Frinkstein 11: 40 28/06/06
Sorry Sir. We were a bit taken aback... It appears to be a pig.
From Major Jenny Maguire 11:41 28/06/06
From Corporal J Frinkstein 11:43 28/06/06
A space pig. Yes sir. In a spacesuit. Photograph uploaded. Between you and me, Sir, I think itís rather sweet.
From Major Jenny Maguire 11:45 28/06/06
Sweet or not, it may still be hostile. Donít touch it. And donít fry it.
From Corporal J Frinkstein 13:28 28/06/06
Corpse taken to xenobiologists at Albion Hosp. Weíre awaiting further examination but it seems to be inert.
Iím uploading a few pics from inside the craft and of control panel details. I donít think weíre learning much.
From Lt. David Judd.
Agreed. Thereís nothing we can use here Ė no proper telecommunications at all. Permission to pull my men out?
From Major Jenny Maguire. 13:44 28/06/06
A space pig. That's all we need. Perhaps we could defrost something else from stores. What about one of the squiddy things? The pressíll love those. Annie?
From Staff Sergeant A Frederick 13:54 28/06/06
Thereís a press conference being arranged. UNIT involvement kept very minimal at this stage.
Thereís a working party being assembled. Weíre getting heavy round-table presence. But thatís about it. Tempted to suggest we just donít show up and leave them to it.
From Major Jenny Maguire 14:40 28/06/06
The government is being useless. Youíd think they either didnít want to even attempt to contain the situation, or just didnít care. My eyes are narrowed in their direction. Anyway, Govt have asked for all top experts. Rounded up all the usual suspects and packed them off to No 10. Also squaring off a few peeps from active operations. Frost's Team are coming over from Geneva. I'd like to see anyone face her down. If we give them our best, itíll show willing. Seen the footage of Big Ben on the news again.
From Staff Sergeant A Frederick 15:35 28/06/06
Oh good grief. Youíll never guess whoís turned up!
From Major Jenny Maguire 15: 42 28/06/06
Who? Oh... Tell me youíre kidding!
From Staff Sergeant A Frederick 15:44 28/06/06
No joke, Major. Considerable improvement on last time.
From Major Jenny Maguire 15:46 28/06/06
Still. Heís got some nerve. Hope heís wearing asbestos pants.
From Staff Sergeant A Frederick 15:48 28/06/06
Number 10 have knocked up a pass for him already. Thereís a whole team down in Swindon whoíve leapt into action like excited monkeys. Have a butchers:
From Major Jenny Maguire 15:56 28/06/06
Hmmn. Well. Iíll still slap him if I see him.
