A White Mechanical Elephant and Exhibition Rd...read 'al 'bout it.

Bearing an invitation on a silver tray, the Dame's new butler, ex Cllr Phelps sidled into the Dame's luxuriously magnificent drawing room.  Impertinently, Phelps had taken the liberty of opening the 'stiffie' and was giggling uncontrollably. 
'Dame, you have been invited to join a parade to inaugurate the White Elephant of Exhibition Rd', said the wicked old fellow. 'And what, pray Phelps, is so funny' snorted the Dame. 'Well, Dame guess what sort of animal is leading the procession? None other than a mechanical White Elephant and following it will be Pooter Cockell and Colin Barrow Boy from Westminster, together with tumblers and a Welsh brass band.
'Well, Phelps I can see nothing wrong with a white elephant: after all, the scheme is just that. And acrobats? Well,  one needs to be one to safely cross 'Moylan'sFolly'. I suppose it has been organised by the Council's £200,000 a year 'Street Manifestions Officer' Miss Totty Brill", declared the Dame. 
'And I am pleased that we are not missing the clowns: I see Cllrs Pooter Cockell, 'Boys' Moylan and Colin Barrow Boy are attending:and the buffoon, in the shape of the Mayor Johnson, said the Dame, flicking ash, with nonchalance, from her cocktail Balkan Sobranie. The only thing missing is the Mad Hatter.....maybe Cllr Palmer wlll be there...

The Dame noticed that 3 press officers, plus Fitzpatrick, from the Propaganda Unit will be standing by to ensure the mechanical White Elephant does not run away.

Pooter & 'Boys' on top of White Elephant



As the wise old butler and ex Worshipful Mayor Phelps said......'you could not make it up'
The Dame will be awarding prizes for the best photo of the White Elephant, acrobats, clowns and buffoons.

  1. What a creepy political sham that they roped Whizz Kids into this! Its a death trap for disabled people and they know it.

    Interesting that they wont be able to get the oil stains out of the pavement nor the chewing gum up either.

    Quite appropriate as it is a stain on the reputation of the council and they and we are stuck with it!
