A man in an artist’s smock is standing in front of an easel, the canvas is empty. They’re in a room that has ‘Council House’ on a sign on a wall.
A man in a suit is posing in for a painting, all statesmanlike. He’s near a desk that has his nameplate on ‘Councillor Ian Ward’.
Another man is standing by the artist, he’s holding a newspapers which has the headline ‘WARD: I’VE NO MANIFESTO’.
“No,” says the artist, “It’s finished.”
