“These are my demands. The grags and what’s left of their guards are coming back to Ankh-Morpork with me. That includes Ardent, though I’m told it’ll be weeks before he can talk again. They’re going before Vetinari. I’ve got promises to keep, and no one is going to stop me. It’ll be tough to make any big changes stick, but I’m bloody well going to try. And since I’ll bet my dinner that Vetinari is in on all this, I expect he’ll pack ‘em off back to Rhys in any case. I imagine he’s got a cell that’s deep enough for comfort. Understood?”
“Yes, sir. And the other demands?”
“The same as that one, repeated in a louder voice,” said Vimes.
