Cast of 30 Duration: 10 – 15 minutes (not including suggested music selections)
Democracy. Justice. Respect and Toleration. … with a little bit of Spice Girls and the Beatles thrown in for good measure. What chance does the Establishment have? Let’s just say – it’s always useful to have a policeman around!
At first sight, this may seem a rather ‘glib’ treatment of what is, of course, a very serious subject. But the message throughout, I hope, is clear – that our nation is one we can feel proud of because of our basic values – to honour and respect mankind, community and individuals alike; and hopefully this example of fairness, equality and justice will be seen as a shining beacon of hope to our children in these troubled times.

Posh Spice: I don’t think so!
Ginger Spice: Times have changed!
Scary Spice: (Glaring at Gentleman and M.P.) Ever heard of equality?
Sporty Spice: Girls and boys – we have equal rights now!
Gentleman: (Muttering) More’s the pity!
Scary Spice: Pardon?
Gentleman: I said, what a delightful group of girls you are!
(Spice Girls pat Gentleman on the shoulder and Gentleman is ‘won over’)
(Exit Spice Girls and Gentleman)
Policeman: Well, I’m glad that ended peacefully!
M.P. Me too! Things have never been the same since we had that woman prime minister!
(Exit Policeman and M.P.)
