All the full time residents round here (the OH and I) lost the right to vote long ago.

Wow couple of great new words for me "denouement" from Elizabeth and "manipullsted" from Nifty (perhaps the latter was in error).
I don’t know about E, but, I play with my words a a lot.
I did notice the error but was pretty tired and simply couldn’t be Rsed to rectify it.

A must read only if you like fiction and know how to actually get to read the œuvre from a Twitter link that only shows a fraction of it, which in fairness is probably a good thing.

There is already a thread on this.

The author like a good chef knows how to create something appealing to the palate of his followers.

Yes - that's what I thought on my original post quoting this unlikely story.

eg - Mayor's office staff moving their day-off to be able to listen in to this meeting? Really? They care that much about the rantings of a (semi-ficticious) Brit?

Never underestimate what people want to believe when they are feeling insecure and what strange pleasure these carefully crafted fantasies can bring to them.

I guess we all enjoy escapism in some shape or form, its whether we buy into it that makes the difference.

The staff in our Mairie would! - not that they would give a toss about a complaining brit, but they certainly wouldn't want to miss out on some good entertainment!

Fringe groups really do.
In my youth I attended a Marxist meeting in London. Towards the end of the meeting one of the speakers started to whip most of the crowd into a baying mob. I had heard enough and made to leave the hall. I reached the main exit to find that it had been locked. As I was trying to open the doors I was apprehended by a Rottweiler who frogmarched me back to my seat. As I was recovering from a recent broken leg I did not put up any resistance.
I think that the present state of the joke that British politics has been achieved apparently, by the use of multiple cunning stunts.
I only hope that when reality kicks in, it won’t be too late to pull the rip-cord.

As an aside, I sometimes still wonder today how my life would have been any different had I not acquiesced to the Rottweiler.
