Dear reader, visualise the scene if you will and open your minds to the pending battle and while your mind sets upon the coming battle, hear in your heads Richard Wagner’s The ride of the Valkyries.
The scene: Wealthy Residential Park Operator seeks site fee increases from pensioner home owners reportedly to pay for planned new development. The pensioners revolt and challenge the increase as being excessive and unnecessary. Park operator calls in glistening white knight lawyer, fully armed and ready to defend his client and defend himself against the fearless devilish pensioner representative who claims to know the real truth behind the increase. The plot thickens, this is no ordinary white knight, this the legendary “Little Anthony”. Fearless in battle against any pensioner who dares to challenge him and the good order of site fee increases gifted by government to anyone who will develop a residential park.
Ah, but the plot thickens. The battle will take place in that most noble of institutions, the Tribunal, that fair minded bastion of justice revered by all who appear before it. The participants in this grand battle will soon appear before a great oracle and fellow white night of Little Anthony. This wise and just oracle will, after hearing the details of battle, retreat into a solemn meditive state and listen to most humble wisdom of fellow oracles in council.
While this deep pondering of wisdom takes place. Hear again the opening of Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” and wonder in amazement where such wisdom and courage are born of such noble knights who dare to take on the wrath of an aged pensioner.
This is not the end but just the beginning. Noble council will issue a decree and set forth the rules of battle. Be patient dear reader, the rules of this joust will be announced soon so that the observers of the battle may take with them the knowledge and amazement of such wise council. Be ye then mindful of the coming battle and be prepared to ride with the Valkyries.
