Why we do not need a council

Every few years it seems we go through this same pointless debate. Voting. Councils. Mayors. Why, dear fellow citizens, do any of you imagine that if we vote someone in, they will then be able to change things! Votes will not enable to us to leave the island. Votes will not improve the climate, or health provision. Votes will however enable a few self righteous people to feel more smug than ever.

Our island was settled with a spirit of independence and self reliance. We get things done by co-operating with each other, not by putting people in charge. We are all equals, and we should keep it that way! Our founding fathers are probably turning in their graves at the thought of ‘democracy’. I am surprised their shades have not yet risen up to challenge this modern lack of sense and moral courage!

I appeal to you to stay away from the meeting at the Town Hall this Friday, where the self righteous amongst us will be trying to persuade you to give up your right to self determination. If you must go, do so with anger, and a good supply of rotten vegetation.

Yup! You said it.. No need for any dang meeting. We can git along just fine without any of that nonsense. If you must go to the meeting, bring your rotten tomatoes…no use wasting them, might as well put them to good use.

I’ll be bringing a wheelbarrow-load of some Things what I found in the lower field ditch. They look a bit like tomatoes, being round and red, and I have found that they squelch nicely when you throw them, although they can complain a bit if you don’t throw them hard enough.
