You want a white card, an imprimo, a 'let this be done. Lord Leighton closed his eyes altogether. J took the hint. He was now carrying the ball. As it should be. His Lordship knew little of officialdom and how things got done in a democracy. That just about sums it up. We want your signature on a piece of paper.
Carte blanche. And we do want the million pounds.
With no questions asked in Parliament I am sure you realize, sir, that this matter is of life or death importance to England. So far, incredible as it may seem, only four people in the world know about it! Lord Leighton, myself, you, sir, and Richard Blade. But if we intend to exploit this thing, sir, and implement the decisions we are obviously going to have to make, based on the discoveries that Blade makes, we cannot maintain this type of cabalistic secrecy.
We must expand, call in other people, a lot of them, and that is going to be an awesome task, sir, from the security viewpoint I think I can handle it, but it is going to take money. A great deal of money. The PM stared down at the sheaf of papers.

Possible mass teleportation of precious minerals, not gold. We all know what that means, don't we? Possible cultural exchanges? I confess that I don't really know what is meant by that. Lord Leighton blinked his yellow eyes. That's what it means. The PM read silently now. J watched and could feel sympathy with the man who headed the British Government J still didn't quite believe it.
