Written by Jonathan Myerson. Simon was due to meet the US National Security Advisor in a room at Heathrow as they both crossed planes. Simon is on his way to a European budget crisis conference.
But now Simon has to travel out to the plane because Buckley, the NSA is jumpy because an arrest warrant has been issued against him - alleging war crimes.
Then suddenly a policeman - Inspector Lagan - manages to enter the cabin, accompanied by Monica, now a Labour MP and a US secret serviceman accidentally shoots him in the arm.
The plane is immediately sealed and Monica is appalled - this inspector needs an ambulance! Tempers flare, torture allegations are thrown and an international incident looms.
Meanwhile, the economy is crashing - Simon was on his way to negotiate with Germany for a bail out for Spain. Simon needs to get there - fast.
