Abstract

Hello patients. The topic for our consultation this month is coloured paper. It seems that when governments want to chat to the people in a democracy, they do it by writing a Green Paper All the serfs are asked to read die paper and send their comments bade to the summit of power. These comments are shredded and used for insulation under the lino in the Parliamentary Members Bar. Then the government issues a White Paper which tells the masses exactly what they were planning to do all along. This paper chase is called 'democracy in action'.
