bellshill dream

Last night I dreamt I had to go to a party, where fortunately I met up with Hotters, who listened in fascination to my thoroughly boring stories (mostly about my dreams of Denny, a post-modern touch).

Later we were in Bellshill, where he used his library card to get us into a country park, reserved for trade union types and other proletarian aristocracy. It was in New Lanark, and because it was members-only, they were able to let in decent proletarians (and their guests like me) and exclude the riff raff.

There were ornamental gardens, swimming pools, cafes and libraries, and everywhere there were crowds of the nicest people imaginable. Everything was in working order (no vandals).

The park rangers drove around in land rovers, checking people's membership.

It was a great system, and the working class went up in my estimation. I could see the benefit of being proletarian. What a pity it was only a dream. I must ask Doc Bob what it means.

  1. Albert? What a good dream! Of course, it means that everything will work out for you, and you will be safe and secure, as long as you do everything I say. Unfortunately, I've decided not to say anything so it'll all balance up. Hotboy p.s. We could start with ten percent off the top!!

  2. I say!

    In this dream, did you manage to get a word in edgeways?

  3. Mingers. Fortunately dreams can be the opposite of reality, so it all balances up. You probably sometimes dream you're a servant.

  4. I say!

    And in this dream, were the proletarians fat? There are very few proletarians in Malawi, but there are a lot of peasant farmers. Very few of them are fat.

    However, in other societies, when peasants move to urban areas, there's a tendency for them to get fat. This is obvious in the UK, for example.

    As your example was about the proletarian aristocracy, maybe they were not fat.

  5. Mingers. Down here everyone's an urban peasant (except the pccasional immigrant Prussian aristocrat), yet they're not as fat as where you are.
