Translation of taped conversation that took place in <DELETED> on <DELETED>. While the transcript has been altered to remove incriminating names, we believe the conversations took place as stated.

<SUBJECT 95>: I'm a little concerned about trying to extend the <AREA01> ID card ban to the two newcomers. It seems to be causing unexpected difficulties.

<SUBJECT 23>: Why? It's just an extension of our current policy.

95: The snag is, that some of THEIR agents have picked up on the it- they're trying to argue that the process should be reversed!

23: That's impossible! What possible logical reason could they put forward for that?

95: Something to do with it being a detraction from unity- which is what we're "supposed" to be working towards, officially, anyway.

23: That'll get nowhere- who would listen?

95: Apparently this was received at the highest level- from THEIR point of view it seems almost reasonable that their ID cards should be universally accepted, rather than not at all. THEY're making it sound extremely plausible. We may end up being isolated over this measure!

23: That's completely unacceptable, and, of course, we won't let it through. We can't allow THEM any concessions whatsoever. What on Earth brought about this turn of events?

95: I think it was our trying to get the two newcomers to reverse their policy about accepting THEIR ID cards...
