At 3pm, Derren gets a text telling us to get to The Sun’s HQ. Two minutes later, he gets another telling us to sit tight. We wait some more. This gives ample opportunity for small-talk. Small-talk is a problem: I am pretending to be an IT worker who is pretending to be a Russian soldier. I am also the worst liar in the world. My primary-school acting talents do not stretch to this. I have no idea what search engine optimisers discuss, but I assume it is not panel-gap consistency and ladder-frame chassis.
