Councillor Richard Cornelius, Leader of Barnet Council, travels to the outer reaches of Nepal to visit the worlds greatest guru. He is troubled that all his hard work as Leader will not be appreciated by the great unwashed masses of voters in Barnet.
He is told that he gets to ask one question and he gets one answer. He is told to listen carefully as the guru is never wrong.
Richard neals before the guru and says "Oh great master, what can I do to be remembered as a great leader of Barnet Council?".
The guru looks Richard firmly in the eyes and says "You have travelled a long way, I have never turned away anyone yet without giving them an honest answer and a solution to their problems and though your conundrum is a difficult one, there is a solution. Try mass hypnosis".
