GAME OF GOVERNMENTS
The natives of Tiny Island are restless. The powers that be are disgruntled.
A lack of sufficient bribery results in Priest deposing Queen. Then all hell breaks loose. Leadership changes hands frequently and violently. Each new government is worse than the last. The exhausted citizens are left worrying about what really counts: who’s going to collect their bins?
We’re living in ‘you-couldn’t-make-it-up’ times. Whatever your political beliefs, the lunatic farce of the political establishment has become so commonplace as to be mundane. Which is terrifying; what’s the next insane thing to happen? Game of Governments is an over the top theatrical joke, with a gentle reminder that politicians are supposed to work for us. Aren’t they?
