SATIRE: What do Star Wars and elected mayors have in common?
George Lucas imagines a fictional meeting of politicians
The following is parody/satire protected by this legislation. Star Wars is of course owned by Disney.
Tagge: Until Wirral Council is fully operational, we are vulnerable! The opposition parties are too well equipped. They’re more dangerous than you realise!
Motti: Dangerous to your political party, not to Wirral Council!
Tagge: The tax credits rebellion will continue to gain support in the House of Lords!
Elected Mayor: The House of Lords will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that Prime Minister Cameron has dissolved the House of Lords permanently. The last remnants of the old democracy have been swept away.
Tagge: But that’s impossible! How will Prime Minister Cameron maintain control without the bureaucracy?
Elected Mayor: The elected Mayors now have direct control over their territories. Fear will keep the locals in line, fear of Wirral Council.
Tagge: And what of the rebellion? If the rebels have obtained a complete technical readout of Wirral Council, it is possible however unlikely that they might find a weakness and exploit it!
Lord Vader: The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands.
Motti: Any attack made by the opposition parties against Wirral Council would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they’ve obtained.
Wirral Council is now the ultimate power in the universe! I suggest we use it!
Lord Vader: Don’t be too proud of this Wirral Council you’ve constructed. The ability to collect council tax is insignificant next to the power of politics.
Motti: Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerer’s ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to politics has not helped you conjure up the stolen plans, or given you enough clairvoyance to find the rebels’ hidden fortress…
[Lord Vader makes a pinching motion and he starts choking]
Lord Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
Elected Mayor: Enough of this! Vader, release him!
Lord Vader: As you wish.
Elected Mayor: This bickering is pointless. Now Lord Vader will provide us with the location of the stolen plans by the time Wirral Council is operational. We will then crush the opposition parties with one swift stroke.
