The gentle sound of marbles being lost

For some time now you've needed a swipe photocard to get around Parliament. It gets you through many locked doors and past the nice policemen with automatic weapons.

This morning I came through just such a locked door using my card. Coming the other way was Denis Healey.

DENIS HEALEY: What did you just use to, to stroke through the door like that?
ME: It's my pass.
DENIS HEALEY: What?
ME: It's my pass.
DENIS HEALEY: (bewildered) Should I be able to do that with my pass?
ME: Yes.
DENIS HEALEY: (beaming with excitement) Oh.

And he wandered off. God knows how he's got around the building for all these years.
