ABBA’s crowd control

Last night I had a dream which was probably inspired by last night’s The Seekers concert.

The dream took place just after the concert while everyone was leaving. The crowd seemed to be meandering aimlessly and was not really moving towards an exit. Suddenly a lady standing on a platform rose above the crowd and started singing. As I looked around I saw a few other platforms on which singers were singing and realised that the singers were in fact ABBA.

The crowd was entranced by the performance of Fernando (which seemed to be interspersed with lines from Waterloo) and had completely stopped moving. The platforms then started to slowly move with the singers on them, and the crowd followed. In a corner of the room I spotted a security guard with a remote control similar to one which would be used for a remote control car and it became apparent to me that ABBA’s performance was set up as a form of crowd control and seemed to be very effective in leading the crowd off the premises in a controlled and calm manner.

Maybe we could get one for palia meant house?.
They do seem to wander around a lot.
Maybe a paliamentary remote control device could be used to take them out to a high cliff, then muster them over the edge, like the Canadian’s “Head smashed in” place:-

Fascinating place!. 🙂

P.S. Deli iberate Miss Spellins ah buv.

Yeah, an intriguing spot…but the fence in the photo is a worry as it doesn’t seem to cover some pretty clear pathways to the edge. I guess the buffalo need to be able to cross somehow.

I’m picturing a rickety old rope bridge similar to the one in Monty Python And The Quest For The Holy Grail.
