News is leaking out of the Town Hall that due to declining popularity in local opinion polls the Council have engaged a Public Relations and Image Consultant to give them a makeover. There will be some changes to terminology but most importantly Councillors and officers will be required to wear a uniform as modelled below; and the new 2 year “Mission” is to seek out new ways of doing more with less and to boldly go where no Council has gone before:
The Town Hall is to be renamed "Enterprise Hall" and a Bridge is to be built in the attic with a huge screen where the "Crew" can keep an eye on us via all the CCTV street clutter and a remote controlled roving "bugeye". Even the lift doors will have the authentic reproduction "swishing" sound.
At the helm we will have Captain Keith T Prince.
Second in command and logic officer is Mr Ian (Spock) Bond.
For our educational health we have Alan (Bones) Weinberg.
And in charge of our wellbeing is Nurse Sue (Chapel) Nolan
In the (re)generation Engine room we have Nick (Scottie) Hayes
Keeping the communications Highways open is Michelle (Ohura) Dunn
Our quartermaster is Robin (Sulu) Turbefield
Then we have John (Chekov) Fairley Churchill navigatiing our Adult entertainment
But there seems to be a slight problem which is delaying the launch. Shoaib (Security) Patel is apparently having a strop on the grounds that the security guards always seemed to get killed off before the end of every episode. His suspicions were aroused when only 8 models turned up for the new Kit photoshoot (above). He is currently rumoured to be hiding in a cupboard somewhere in the Town Hall basement.
