“...out from the boardroom came a long file of members, all walking on their hind legs...out came Napoleon himself, majestically upright, casting haughty glances from side to side, and with his lackeys gambolling round him.
He carried a whip in his trotter.
There was a deadly silence. Amazed, terrified, huddling together, the supporters watched the long line of members march slowly round the yard. It was as though the world had turned upside-down. Then there came a moment when the first shock had worn off and when, in spite of everything-in spite of their terror of the Lackeys, and of the habit, developed through long years, of never complaining, never criticising, no matter what happened-they might have uttered some word of protest. But just at that moment, as though at a signal, all the Ticket holders burst out into a tremendous bleating of-
"Supporters good, board better! Supporters good, board members better!Supporters good, board members better!"
It went on for two years without stopping. And by the time the sheep had quieted down, the chance to utter any protest had passed, for the board had marched back into the Boardroom.”
