Five people, A, B, C, D & E, are in a car, driving past Heathrow on the M4.
A [the driver]: "We're about to leave London, and there's a junction ahead. Where do we go next?"
C: “Over my dead body! We had a vote, and we, the passengers, voted to leave London.”
B: “We ARE leaving London. Windsor is not part of London. Look at the map.”
C: “It’s TECHNICALLY not part of London. But it’s part of the wider London commuter belt. It’s London in all but name.”
B: "Who's 'we'? I also voted to leave London, and I very much DO want to go to Windsor."
D: "Windsor isn't leave. It's a betrayal of the vote, and of the great passengers of this great car."
C: “To the Isle of Wight. Turn left.”
D: “To Leeds. Turn right.”
B: "Are you insane?! Nobody said anything about going THAT far away!"
C: "Of course we did. That was always clear."
C: "I may not literally have put it that way, but it was always clear that 'leaving London' meant 'going to the Isle of Wight.'
D: “We had a vote, E! Why do you hate democracy, you sneering elitist snob?”
E: “You were fooled, D. You didn’t actually want to leave.”
D: “Yes, I did!”
D: “Don’t patronise me! You don't get to tell me what I, supposedly, 'actually' meant!"
D [to A]: “Did I say Leeds? I meant EDINBURGH! I want to go to EDINBURGH!”
B: “Stop it, E. You’re just making D more extreme.”
B: “I wanted to go to Windsor.”
E: “We were never going to go to Windsor! Because A only listens to C and D, and they HATE Windsor.”
C: "I never said that. Or maybe I mumbled, and it sounded a bit like 'Windsor'. But I meant 'Isle of Wight'. That was always clear."
D: "You know why we're not getting anywhere? Because you, E, are constantly talking this journey down. And you, A, are sabotaging it."
A: "I'm doing my best here. Really."
D: "No you're not. You voted to stay."
D: "Then why are we not getting anywhere? It's because you don't really BELIEVE in it!"
E: "What we 'believe' is irrelevant. Beliefs don't change geography."
E: "It kinda does."
D [to A]: "Did I say Edinburgh? I meant INVERNESS! I want to go to INVERNESS!"
E: "So? I'm right. Besides, even if we could somehow, magically, get to Inverness quickly: Where would we stay? We haven't got a hotel booking there."
D: "Well, let's just go there without a booking!"
D: "Of course we can - under the rules of the British Hospitality Association. Let's go BHA!"
E: "That's not how this works. I think you don't understand what the BHA does."
B: "Stop it, E. You're just making D more extreme."
E: "I'm right."
C: "Let's go to the Isle of Wight."
B: "Remember this London club card we've got? It also covers Windsor, and they've got a club house with accommodation there, where we wouldn't need a booking. So if we..."
A: "Guys, we're at the junction. I need to make a choice now. Where do I go?"
D: "Turn right. We're going to Shetland."
C: "Turn left. We're going to the Isle of Wight."
B: "We wouldn't have to stay in Windsor forever, but if we could use it as an interim option..."
C: "A, you're so useless as a driver. Just implement the result of the vote."
A: "Should we vote again?"
C: "Absolutely not."
D: "We've already voted. You need to respect the result, and get on with it."
B, C, D & E: "JUST GET ON WITH IT!"
