PICTURE a meeting of the council, a scene of calm and solemnity, all seats are occupied, save one.
The door opens and our great leader enters, purposely he strides across the floor, mounts the dais and settles himself in his chair. After ensuring he has full attention, a smile illuminates his countenance.
“Fellow members, you’ll never guess what, I’ve had another brilliant idea.”
Chins drop, faces droop, what will it be this time.
Selling off Clifford’s Tower to become an indoor bungee jumping centre?
Charging racing pigeons to over-fly York airspace?
Erecting notices in Rowntree Park banning geese from fouling the grass – in English and French for the benefit of French-Canadian geese?
Surely there is a better outlet for his talent. Honourable member for Falklands South has a certain resonance to it.
