WorkBoot Blogs » Curbing the Debt Addiction - Act 4 Scene 1 – Infirm of Purpose
Another workshop at Dargaville. Yes, THE super-secret workshop on the Proposed District Plan.
Readers of this blog will know that much expense and great effort was gone to create the LARSEN Gag v2 – the Confidentiality Deed (for background click here) especially for this event.
As Act 4 Scene 1 opened, the Proposed District Plan Workshop, the issue of the LARSEN Gag v2 – the Confidentiality Deed was duly raised. Those that had not signed were dragooned into signing this writ. The blood of their souls dripped from the paper.
And so it came to the turn of your WorkBoot. The charade of outraged group think from the old guard was applied but Workboot was still not given REASONS why this vile and debasing act, that struck so deep at being an elected representative, should be dignified with his blood on 'X' marks the spot.
Adopting my usual (albeit apparently annoying stance) of, if I don't understand I will keep asking questions, having no satisfactory answers, I refused to sign.
At this point the Mayor asked our courtiers from Brookfields whether if I refused I could remain at the workshop. Unfortunately, despite their high-priced, writ-drafting, the answer, as was always clear from the LAW (here), was that excluded I could not be.
Shakespeare, of course, said it all. The famous line from Macbeth, when Lady Macbeth accuses Lord Macbeth (having done the terrible murder) of being “Infirm of purpose!” (for a context see here) is so appropriate. After the Brookfields' answer, the great trumpeting ceased and Workboot was able to stay in the secret proceedings to hear all about our unaffordable folly, the Proposed District Plan. I listened, said little and will say nothing here as the proper place, if permitted, is in open proceedings of Council.
In case the black comedic aspects engulf you with Much Ado About Nothing jokes and another joke contest erupting on this blog, regrettably Workboot must spoil the mirth by pointing out there are more serious issues that must be discussed.
As for more important matters, I am working on a further blog on the issue of the missing millions on Ecocare.
As for the 'rust'(here), I am working on befriending the 'rust'. Although the Confidentiality Deed, that dreadful deed and its accompanying vile and debasing acts, were more rust, I drew strength from thinking about Shakepeare's words again as I faced down the old guard on this issue.
"I were better to be eaten to death with a rust than to be scoured to nothing with perpetual motion." seemed even more understandable and more powerful.
So give me a few days. I will be back with a further blog on the missing millions.
In the meantime I should acknowledge that all this craziness has had an unexpected benefit – a new understanding of Shakespeare!
