As members of the audience left the show mid-performance GSX and I considered it legitimate to move closer to the stage and take a couple of vacated seats in the front row.
The star of the show didn’t seem to mind this at all. Indeed he pulled GSX on to the stage to ask her if she would like to help identify the next set of audience volunteers by sending red balloons for capture into the auditorium.
As she took on this task another chunk of the audience left, led by a disgraced Labour MP. Before long we would be the only ones left to watch the end of the show.
