Headline Grabber.

 

Explain to me please, what is going on?”

How, Sir? In what way, Sir?” The general was clearly nervous, not wanting to say the wrong thing. He needed his job, his position and just one wrong word would put his whole future in jeopardy.

Where is my name? Where is my picture?”

The Leader was becoming upset and the General did not quite know how to go about placating him. He picked up one newspaper after another off the huge heap of them, brought in from all over the world.

There is no sign of me. Not a mention. This situation must be remedied immediately.”

It was true. The headlines were of floods, of politics, of broken laws. Not one mention was made of his Leader, of his country. He had to come up with something.

And then the Leader spoke. He had a glint in his eyes as he told of his plans. The General was nervous......who could tell what the consequences would be.

But there was no doubt that the suggestion would get his Leader right back on to the front pages.

The General forced a smile, and clapped his hands along with his Leader, burying his misgivings, silencing his doubts.

"An excellent idea, Sir! I’ll see to it right away!”
