Here's something else to ponder:
your theory (which is often parroted by your followers) about the authorship of
the original agreement - with the concomitant motives as ascribed by you- was
true, why the inclusion of a termination clause?
Thank you for that . I invite all to ponder this question.
At times, I fear I am too brusque. Or obtuse mayhap..
Someone suggests a morning visit here is like a "famous movie quote" "the smell of napalm".
I am not familiar with the quote.
It's cultural,I guess.
Napalm, for my generation, carries with it horrifying images. Entirely without humour.
The slight blight on the Aladdin pantomime on Saturday was cultural .
British farce is robust and in your face.
On Saturday,. the pantomime was muted to some extent. Various sound effects of the bits and bobs of a drum kit were missing.
Last night, I heard a comment about humour.
There needs to be truth about something one does not expect to hear. The shock touches the part of us that spontaneously produces laughter.
Christmas 2012 was the second staging of pantomime in Burlington. The audience were mainly children..
Pantomime is intended for their enjoyment. But it is also adult entertainment. So adult, the vulgarity of the humour flies over the heads of children.
Apparently, parents complained in 2011.
So, in 2012, the humour was muted.
If the problem existed when pantomime was staged in Newmarket Town Hall theatre, I never heard about it.
It's obviously cultural.
Widow Twanky Panky was Aladdin's mother with references to late husband, Hanky Panky. Hoo Flung Dung and Won Long Pong were all part of the merry company.
But lines were cautiously delivered.
To return to the question at the start of this post.
Why was there a termination clause in the original agreement between the Town and the Cultural Centre Board.
We must travel back in time for the answer.
This blog started in August 2007 some 26 hundred posts ago. After it was established by Mormac and gang, that despite an election, there would be no role was for me in that council.
Methods were not subtle.
Termination of one kind or another was a regular, prominent and not so prominent feature of the term.
A termination clause in the agreement fit perfectly with the scenario.
A separate and autonomous agreement for governance of Church Street School, rent and maintenance free facilities, munificent funding , staff separated from municipal, was never intended for the political advantage of other than the deadly duo and known associates
The termination clause was a threat.
"Will you walk into my parlour, said the spider to the fly "
Oh my yes !!!
There's no shortage of stories to tell.
