Giggle.  No, I think our are not malicious, merely extremely capricious and
dreadfully quarrelsome.  And probably running everything by the consensus
method.  (Which might possibly explain why I had to wait 35 minutes instead
of 5 for a bus home from work today; the sub-committee that runs rail
transport quarrelled so much that all the signal-men went on strike, so no
trains.  And the public transport committee as a whole doesn't even talk to
the general traffic committee (which is almost equally large, capricious and
quarrelsome) - result?  Frightful traffic jams and very late buses.)

Until the sky falls on our heads...
