Wednesday morning found Amy and Jimmie in a train to Knowtown. Jimmie knew that the Annual Far Out Party Conference was being held there and that on that day the famous FoT policy wonk, George Crowthorne, was going to speak about FoT policy.
Amy and Jimmie held up their train tickets as if they were conference floor passes, Amy stared heavily at the security guards and Amy and Jimmie walked into the hall.
“And so, ladies and gentlemen, I shall tell you again we are not into immigration, no need to speak about it, we are into repatriation. I’ll tell you…” George Crowthorne stopped mid sentence and walked off the podium and out of the hall. What was going on?
“Hello, ladies and gentlemen, my name is Amy. George Crowthorne has left the conference for a sandwich – I don’t think that he will be coming back. I’m going to speak about the policies of the party, your party – perhaps not quite George Crowthorne’s policies, but better ones.” Amy moved her head slowly from side-to-side staring heavily at the party delegates.
“I’m going to ask you ladies and gentlemen to stuff it and I mean here repatriation. Immigration is a good thing – you’ll have to get used to it.
It is not good to say that every person who has green or blue or black or yellow or red or brown skin must return to their country of birth and say that is not racist because of all the colours and because there are so many countries to be sent back to. Racism, Xenophobia and hate are OUT! Got it? Racism, Xenophobia and hate are OUT!”
Amy moved her head slowly from side-to-side staring heavily at the party delegates.
Two hours later Amy had shredded all the FoT policies and had renamed the party the LOve and Happiness Party (LoP). “And so, ladies and gentlemen, I have corrected all the policies of the party, your party. In about an hour you will come fully to your senses, you will be filled with love and happiness; however the neo-Nazis amongst you will return to hate and misery. That is your decision. Thank you for your time.”
Amy left the stage. “Really big time stupidity! Amy darling.” Jimmie was impressed.
