My name is Dr Moran, I have invented a weather machine capable of increasing the humidity and heat in the city of dublin to sickening levels. I will continue to use this machine to sort of piss off every man, woman and child in this city until they all get really cranky.
If you do not desire this drastic turn of events you will drop one million euro  in a bag from a purple helicopter over O'Connell St bridge at noon on friday.
I trust you will come to the sensible conclusion.

 Ideally one million pounds, but 1.29 million euro just sounds wrong for some reason.
