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.

elected mayor to Wirral Council;These are the droids I am looking for.
Here’s a bit of Alec Guinness. The quote is at about the 45 second mark.
Don’t think you far from the true, if they could, they would!
But I’m going to have the Star Wars theme in my head for the rest of the day now!
Well all good satire has a grain of truth to it!
The thumbsdowners on your site really amuse me John. ha ha ha
The pathetic anonymous specimens actually bother to read my rot and then not comment on it, or, anything in an open, honest and transparent way.
Why would you be in an organisation that says do as I say but don’t do the right thing if I say so.
The creature is sort of impotent.
They probably want their kids to be in a gang as well, it is like gang mentality they are in, you just follow blindly and if you do it nicely we won’t kick you out.
You have to follow the leader regardless of him being a complete mumpty.
They give up their honesty and decency…………….for what?
Whenever I see comments on this blog there aren’t thumbs up and down icons, but it’s a bit of a “wisdom of the crowds” thing really. I only get the option to like a comment.
My guess is probably that they see some of your comments as off-topic or the person doing it is in some way associated with Wirral Council.
And going completely off-topic you were right with your prediction of the All Blacks winning the Rugby World Cup.
As to honesty and decency, well I hope I’ve kept mine!
I didn’t think Australia would get to the final.
Then I remembered who they were playing.
It is like as usual John the best team wins and that might be why we have a tory government that is a a very very small iota better than the dross and slurry of the opposition if you can call them opposition.
John if if the council was full of you, Leaky, Paul, Martin and “Highbrow” we would beat their IQ by about 2,000,000 which is probably the number of quids Wirral “Funny” Bizz knocked off.
The decency and honesty would be upped ginourmously.
Stick ya thumbs up ya giant derrieres.
With Bobby47 as SUPER MAYOR
Thanks for the compliment.
The scrutiny committees tonight, tomorrow and the day after (originally to discuss budget cuts) have all been cancelled, so I have some more free time to write some more obscure stories.
Sadly for you, I’m not going to rename the blog “Adventures in local government audit”. 😀
Well people said the same about the Labour opposition nationally until Jeremy Corbyn was elected as Leader.
You see the opposition on Wirral Council can huff and puff all they like but they can’t blow Labour’s majority down.
It’s up to the people at election time to decide who they want in charge.
You get what you ask for John.
Sadly I ask for a lot and rarely get everything I ask for. 😀
