The local election is coming up and David will doubtless be reelected as councillor for Dibley. Geraldine is appalled that he abuses his position to take free trips to supposed twinning sites when the local bus service is woefully inadequate. The other members of the parish council persuade her to stand against him,which she does but she drops out. However,she gets a load of pensioners to invade the golf course to 'persuade' him to do something about the buses. Written by don @ minifie-1
