Thought for The Day

    Town Council? Was the Prisoner a member? He could have been, it's democratically elected once a year. Democratically? That's what they say.  Such is the drift of part of the conversation between the Prisoner and his ex-colleagues of the Colonel and Thorpe.
    The Prisoner could have been a member of the Town Council couldn't he? He certainly had the qualifications, as being an ex-Number 2 {if not elected, then appointed by the out-going Number 2, after it was he who pinned the 2 rosette on the lapel of the new Number 2’s blazer}. Because seeing as how each Council member is a sub-divided Number 2, 2a, 2b 2c, 2d, 2e, 2f, 2g, 2h, 2i, 2j, 2k, 2l, so it is suggestive that the Town Council is made up by failed former Number 2’s.
   It would appear that Number 6 had a narrow escape, had it not been for the fact that they were protecting the brain tissue, Number 6 may very well have found himself standing amongst those brainwashed imbeciles, as he once described them, on the Town Council.

Be seeing you


  1. Hello David,
    poor imbeciles, aren't they? They weren't even given "real" numbers, or they lost them on the way. Also, the power still lies with 2. They are just additions to the one in charge, not even representatives of the villagers. I've never thought about it this way but this is just another interesting comment on the the Villages' democracy..

    Best wishes,

    1. Hello Jana,
      They are indeed poor imbeciles! But they are given real numbers, remember Number 113 {the reporter for The Tally Ho in 'Free For All,' and his photographic colleauge Number 113b. And perhaps the operator of The Tally Ho dispenser Number 113c, although that cannot be proved as he wears no badge, mind you neither does Number 113b! More importantly the members of the Town Council appear to have no voice, except for the Chairman Number 2. There are many forms of democracy, but this isn't one of them!

      Very best wishes
