Around this time most people were coming to terms with the financial cost to the taxpayer of the Dome...
Dream Ticket also relates to the fiasco in relation to the Dome's cost...
(Or an Injustice of a Kind)
Last night I had a dream I was heading down
the M1 doing 103,
In an old beat up Lada Samara 1.3.
And then I dreamt Two Jags Prescott overtook me
on the hard shoulder in a plastic pig,
And I thought to myself something must be
happening it must be something big;
When Cobalt Blue in my rear view mirror
And it was to the hard shoulder I then found
Do you know what speed you were doing?
Asked the man in blue,
His face an official, unmoving tinted mask
of grey granite hue;
Can I have your name sir?
Asked the officer of the law,
And quick as a flash the answer given back
And as I was waved on my way, without
I heard the officer in blue say-
See you Jack!
And then I dreamt the news on my car radio
came over load and clear,
And it was the voice of the Prime Minister
I could hear.
He was confessing to the diamond heist
at the Dome,
And the he had masterminded the plan
alone at home.
His idea was to use the gems insurance to
pay off the Dome’s debt,
And the vehicle he used for the heist was
a Royal Naval Corvette.
But when things went wrong he got into
a bit of a sweat,
For his getaway the Royal Airforce would
not let him have use of the Queen’s Flight Jet.
And then from my dream I awoke to find
sitting there in my letter rack,
A cancelled speeding fine ticket with a
With best wishes...From Jack...

Cou(Con)ncillors Clot, Clot, Twerpy McBirk,
Dopey, Soapy and Twit!
Are changing the name of Aberdeen to
What is the reason? you may ask,
Well surely this must be it-
They’re changing the name of Aberdeen
because the Council’s strapped for cash,
They’re hoping this will solve some of the
problem that is related to feelings
of financial fash;*
So Cou(Con)ncillors Clot, Clot, Twerpy McBirk,
Dopey, Soapy and Twit!
Have changed the name of Aberdeen to
They think the answer to all their problems,
this surely must be it!
