“What he said”: M in Dr. No

How “Dr. No” (James Bond) starts: Some poor oppressed old women force the Secret Service to do something about endangered bilrds.

“See what I mean, 007?
Just the sort of mare’s nest these Old Women’s Societies are always stirring up. Preserving something. Churches. Old houses. Birds…
There is always a Hullabaloo of some sort. The problem is, these sort of people get really worked up about their damned birds or whatever it is. They get politicians involved and they always seem to have stacks of money. God knows where it comes from. Other old women, I suppose.
And then there comes the point when someone has to do something to keep them quiet. Like this case. It gets shunted off to me because that place is British Territory. At the same time it is private land. So what am I supposed to do? Send a submarine?”
