Mattie could sense her editor's nervousness. All editors live on their nerves, but the secret is not to show it. Preston showed it.
玛蒂感受不到编辑的紧张。所有编辑都紧绷着那根弦,但要诀是不要表现出来。普雷斯顿表现出来了。

'OK' he demanded, 'they had a majority of 102 at the last election. Tell me what you think it's going to be tomorrow. All the opinion polls are predicting around 70 seats.'

“好吧,”他要求道,“他们去年选举获得了102个席位,告诉我明天会怎样,所有预测都显示政府会获得70个席位。”


'You trust the polls if you want, Grev,' she warned, 'but I'd rather trust the feel I get out on the streets. There's no enthusiasm amongst Government supporters. They won't turn out and it will drag the majority down.'
“你要相信投票预测那就相信吧,格雷”她警告道,“但是我还是会相信街头巷尾传言的结果。政府的支持者没有任何热情可言。他们不肯投票,这会给政府拖后腿的。”


'Come on,' he bullied. 'How much?'

“别逗了,”他轻蔑道,“会有多大影响?”


She shook her head slowly to emphasise her caution, her short blonde hair brushing around her shoulders. 'A week ago I would have said it would be about 50. Now it could be even less,' she responded.

她慢慢摇了摇头,以显示她对此事的谨慎态度。她的金色短发扫过肩膀,回答道:“一个星期前我会说大概有50个席位,但现在会更少。”

'Jesus, it can't be less. We've backed those bastards all the way and they've got to deliver.'

“天啊,不能更少了。我们一直支持那帮混蛋,他们不能辜负我们的期望啊。”
