Whenever my grandchildren watched Peppa Pig at our house I always thought of bacon sandwiches with her providing the filling :D

Oh where to start in reply to this posting?

 

How about...  a diesel shunter with cylinder drain cocks?

 

Or more seriously, passengers in a carriage without door locks?  Oh, that is OK for there are no doors!

 

Lovely story-telling, thank you.

I enjoy the ambiguity of the agnostic observer.  As for gripe, that is what we used to quell excess wind in our children when they were babies. Now there's a thought.

Sam,

That is the beauty of it.  It can be whatever anyone wants it to be. I'll write the next instalment in a few weeks's time.

I'm not sure this story is conveying the correct message to infants. Daddy pig's suggestion was merely that, and therefore would have been a single item on the agenda. The HOG committee seem to have gone about their business in the correct democratic manner and held talks and polled the members - who voted to reject the request. 

 

Is the story trying to give young children the impression that if their request is rejected by a democratic process, they must become grumpy and demand an EGM in order to get their demands passed come what may? 

 

I think in part two of the story, Madame Gazelle would have to give Daddy pig a stern lecture on the perils of autocracy; and how to simply just accept the majority vote. 

 

(I will now don my tin hat, get my coat, and leg it.....)

Are the HOGs where the grumpy old Boars go?

Perhaps Daddy Pig can provide some concrete evidence to support his submissions? After all he is an internationally-recognised expert! But what if Suzie Sheep jumps on the bandwagon? Perhaps Daddy Pig is so aggrieved that he'd like to go back to 1945 when George Orwell wrote a certain book ....

Hi Chris.

 

Never mind what is behind the story, it is not relevant to me at least. What is important is that I enjoyed the tale and cannot wait for the next installment!

Such a lot more to follow in further episodes. I would like to see how Daddy Pig explains the minimal attendance at the EGM and the differences between proxy voting via the Chairman, proxy voting via another member, postal voting and an electronic ballot. I also assume there will be crowdfunding (perhaps by Mr Jones as he did promise something in 0 Gauge) to cover the legal fee for the advice given to the HOGs before Daddy Pig can get his motion added to the agenda.

Can a Moderator please move this to the Vegan section?  Thank you.  Its making me feel hungry.

 

P.S. Does anyone do a 7mm GIGANTOR HOG Spit-Roasting conversion kit for the Warwell?

You know the type - two shaft supports on each raised platform, the spit shaft and a long fire grate for the deck......

Daddy Pig has plenty to contemplate as he sits in his deckchair on the beach at Tonfanau. However, they have got to get there first and who knows what might happen on the way what with a change of engines in Slopshire, the possibility of rain en route and a shunt with a rather small diesel locomotive.

Steady. In these days of gender neutral politics, you could probably be arrested for commenting on someone's choice of clothing and footwear.

If Peppa's family could first wrap themselves in blankets, that would be most delightful.

No doubt looking north towards the highest mountain in Wales where Daddy Pig could ask too many questions and get too many answers . . . .
