Parallel Lives chapter 81

The snow had been falling heavily for the last twenty minutes, causing the RAF policemen to slow down to a virtual crawl. They had phoned ahead once already to advise that they would be delayed or may even need to find alternative accommodation for the night.
Jim had no interest in the snow, their speed or where they would spend the night. The journey had simply acted as a focus for his concerns; the more he thought about it he realised that his career was on the rocks. Sixteen years’ service was going to be wiped because he had been made a fall guy for some Secret Service cock up. The policemen escorting him were still treating him like a leper, speaking only when absolutely necessary and usually across him. He felt he was being transported to Fylingdales simply to be set up, to be made a scapegoat for the mistakes made at Officer level. He became aware of one of the policemen talking into his mobile phone, undisguised irritation in his voice.
'We've got to turn back, take him to Bristol somewhere,' the policeman sat alongside Jim said.
'What? Tonight? In these conditions?' blurted the driver, eyeing the carpet of snow lying across the road.
'Yes, and it’s come from a very high level. The Station Commander has been over-ruled on this one. Our shifts for tomorrow have been filled by others on the base. Apparently this guy is now the new flavour.’
