The only reason I got that so quickly is that I posted a similar clue with the same answer a few months ago. (something like "bird of prey in the East End")

Next clue:-

So boring super rich people need to sort themselves out in order to find out where they are going.

I've been working on an anagram of "boring super rich people need"; but am coming to suspect that that is not a productive line to follow...

We need an emoji denoting one banging one's head against a brick wall or, given the amount of time I spent trying to work this out, one with someone with a gun pointing at their own head...

We might hear that genuine Portulaca oleracea obtains at this station (once on a rather unusual part of the London, Midland & Scottish Railway).

Glasgow Central? Some convoluted thinking on my part led to this rather obvious station.
Convoluted and likely brilliant; but wrong, I'm afraid.


Troopers Lane in Northern Ireland.

Portulaca oleracea is the Latin name for Purslane, a type of plant.

So genuine portulaca oleracea could be pronounced True Purslane
That's it, precisely (on the former Northern Counties Committee system, of "our island" 's LMS and prior to that, Midland, Railways).

Your floor.
