The Old Room is a bar where people meet, sometimes   by accident. It’s also a memory of a pl ace in Prague where Sam used to go when he worked at the British Embassy; a place where there was desire, betrayal and a honey trap. Now Sam works in cyber security helping to fend off attacks on people like 4C, a political lobbying organisation.
‘Is that why you try to hide your cyber footprint?’ ‘The only way to do that is not to use email, Skype or social media, to have a pay-as- you-go phone and switch it off when you’re not using it’.
