Undue Influence by Gordon Lawrie

“So, Mr Tramp, you want to be King of ‘England’?”
“Yeah, sure. How much? Five billion bucks do it?”
“ … Things don’t really work that way here, Mr Tramp.”
“Sure they do. Money buys influence.”
“You think so, Mr Tramp?”
“I KNOW so. I’ve got ten billion. Governments do what I say.”
“You reckon you can buy influence in government here, Mr Tramp?”
“Sure, I do it all the time. Say, what did you say your name was? Cameron?”
“Yes, Cameron. Police Superintendent Cameron. And you’re under arrest, Mr Tramp.”
“OK. How much does it cost to get out of jail?”
