60 Second Interview With No.2

    “If you don’t mind my saying Number Two, you cut the figure of a statesman.”
    “No I don’t mind your saying that at all, its not all that often we politicians get good press. Who are you anyway?”
    “I am Number One-one-three, and this is Number One-one-three b, we contribute to The tally Ho.”
   “Smile” click goes the camera.
   “Newspaper men eh, so what’s brought about this sudden interest in me?”
   “Well Number Two.............”
   “No doubt it’s because of the way I exercise a remarkable manipulation of such a community as ours.”
    “Well not really. It’s the way you demonstrate a measure of individualism!”
    “Individualism, whatever do you mean?”
    “Well most Number Two’s wear a plain dark double breasted blazer. But you wear a different jacket altogether. It’s a specialist jacket, what would you call that colour, dove grey?”
    “I’m not sure.”
    “What’s more it has cuffs, what kind of jacket has cuffs at the end of its sleeves?”
    “I don’t know what you’re getting at, but I don’t see what this has to do with anything!”
    “Also you don’t wear the regular grey rolled neck jersey.”
    “I wouldn’t would I, not with this jacket!”
    “And I haven’t seen you put your hand in your jacket pocket.”
    “Should I?”
    “You usually do, it’s one of your little traits.”
    “Is it, I hadn’t noticed.”
    “Why pick Number Six as your opposition candidate?”
    “I don’t think that has anything to do with you!”
    “Number Six is just the sort of candidate we need.”
    “Please don’t write that down!”
    “How will you handle your campaign?”
    “I have no comment at this time!”
    “Will use every means at my disposal.”
    “Now you’re putting words into my mouth!”
    “Don’t worry Number Two, it’s what I do. But, Number 2 the press is right behind you. There just one thing I don’t understand.”
    “And what is that?”
    “How did you get to Number 6’s cottage so quickly that time?”

Be seeing you
