Thought For The Day

    ‘Checkmate’ is something of a clever little episode, an episode which has four clear meanings.
A} The obvious reference to the game of chess.
B} No.6 loses the game, ie he is checkmated at the end game.
C} The white Queen is hypnotised into thinking that she is in love with No.6, and he with her. And by this means a possible mate, and Village gains a way of maintaining a check on No.6.
D} And by the title of the story No.6 has the check out his reliable men {mates} in the Village, and those who are not!

Be seeing you
