Talking to Nugent, who works in the council one-stop-shop over on The Strand in Senebene, he tells me of an incident they had yesterday.
"We had these two Aussies come in. They'd travelled over from Leicester because they needed to go to the Australian Embassy. They'd walked all around the housing estate but couldn't find it."
It's a measure of the fearsome reputation of the average Australian that they'd wandered round Senebene unmolested. Nugent gently pointed them London way.
