Monologue Text

Start: It’s quite simple. The Prime Minister--that’s me--comes to the Palace every Tuesday evening and explains what of note has transpired that past week in Cabinet, Parliament and Foreign Affairs.

[... ...]

End: No planners could have come up with it. And at the heart of it, wrapped in a knot of mysteries and inconveniences, is the relationship between you and me, Crown and Government.
