Look At Them, Brainwashed Imbeciles Can You Laugh? Can you Cry? Can You Think?
There are thirteen members of the Town Council, 2, 2a, 2b, 2c, 2d, 2e, 2f, 2g, 2h, 2i, 2j, 2k, 2l, with 2 as Chairman. But they are all 2's, subdivided maybe, but 2 nonetheless for that. So are these twelve members past 2's, Chairmen of the Village? And having failed, is this how they ended up, brainwashed imbeciles on the Local Town Council?
But it’s all a game isn't it? Why the need for a local town Council when there is no democracy of any kind in the Village? And Number 2 admitted as much, when she told Number 6 'Even at best, free democracy is remarkably inefficient' The Village administration is effective, but has no opposition, an irritation they have dispensed with! And perhaps in that lies the truth, that there used to be a democracy in The Village which was clearly demonstrated during the 'free' elections of the Village when 'Every citizen has a choice' Number 2 was clear to point out. But by the time of ‘Dance of the Dead’ the once free democracy of The Village has been swept away. That would give colour as to why the Council Chamber had given way to the Committee Chamber seen in ‘A Change of Mind.’ Well if no Town Council is ever to be needed again, such a chamber would have been put to some other use, as Number 2 says "Waste not, want not!"
Be seeing you
