SHEILA:

You mean you don't read a daily paper?

RALPH:

No, I haven't the time.

SHEILA:

So how do you know what's going on?

RALPH:

I listen to the news on the radio in the morning, and I watch the TV news at night.

SHEILA:

And you find that that's enough?

RALPH:

Yes.

SHEILA:

So tell me about the Prime Minister: what was he doing yesterday? Who came to see him? What should he have been doing at 3 o'clock?

RALPH:

I know that ... it's the story at the moment. Some foreign journalists were interviewing him and he didn't realise that he was late for Parliament.
