EuroFiles (Final Issue). The Angel of Mercy – Leader of Germolena and prospective Head of Planet Earth

Unfortunately, no pictures were available for the actor playing The Angel of Mercy in The Yellow Box. Not to worry – a photographic look-alike agency came to the rescue.

The Angel’s ordinary looks and self-professed lack of humour belie tremendous drive. In fact, such is her zeal for expansion she might eventually drive the entire world into the Eurocratic stockade. She does, after all, spend considerable time roaming the planet for fresh acquisitions, much like 19th Century empire builders did.

‘We want you!’

Senior Grey is in awe of The Angel. And other Greys, like Dim and Cleverclogs, relish her visits to the Bristles basement.

But Rebel Grey, who has a nose for these things, thinks there’s more to The Senior’s relationship with The Angel than meets the eye. She clearly pooh pooh’s the idea – as you can see.

Expect to feel inspired by the Angel of Mercy’s personal appearance at Ledbury Market Theatre on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th September. Her pep talks are commanding.

But watch out! You too might become driven – to move permanently to Germolena under The Angel’s safe and sturdy wing for ever and ever …

EuroFiles (No.6) – Newdawn Grey and Newday Grey

‘It’s a Newdawn, it’s a Newday …’

For the songsters among you, yes, these two founder-Greys of the Eurocratic Union are indeed leading …

‘… a new life … and fee-eelin’ good’!

They’re proud of their role in making the Union the sound and solid institution it is – by, for example, insisting that Atlantic pollock are not being caught too small; by reinforcing the ban on old-fashioned pounds and ounces; and by encouraging traders to sell eggs in tens rather than sixes.

Newdawn and Newday are leaders in the daily brainstorm for new regulations. It was Newdawn alone who thought up the idea of straightening cucumbers and bananas, and Newday who suggested that without bends in roads and railways we’d get everywhere much quicker.

It’s not all plain sailing. Here, during quality control of fruit and veg, Newdawn is shocked by a cucumber which appears to bend in different directions at each end. Hard enough for the Greys to classify – let alone what the poor Eurocratic shopper is supposed to think!

But don’t imagine for one moment that Newdawn and Newday are only concerned with crooked cucumbers. Along with her sidekick Wisecrack Grey, Newdawn leads the way in office naughtiness; and Newday’s roving eye is certainly caught by roving tai chi instructor Finski Feelgood.

After all, Greys are only human … I believe.
