Review of the Quarterly Moot

1.  The list of organisations to which Druids may not belong has now been expanded to include: The Movement for a Free Milton Keynes; The Steps Fan Club; Woburn Sands Gardeners' Club; The Aspley Methodists' Bright Hour; the Facebook Group "I bet I kind find a million men who support male druids" (current members 4 - and I know who you all are); The Wellingborough Arm of the Royal Ancient Order of the Bison; Ridgmont Station Train Spotters; Cranfield Club; The Corded Wear Folk of North Crawley (splitters); The Beano Club.

2.  The proposal to explore possible routes towards male arch-druids was rejected unanimously and without a vote or discussion.  The Air Supply was restored to the Moot Hall shortly afterwards.

3.  The Archdruid refused to discuss the question as to why all the snow melted so swiftly off the roof of the Great House, beyond a short comment that "it obviously needs better insulation".

4.  The Archdruid informed the Moot that, as the Community is on agricultural land, there is no need for concern about Rain Tax.  However it was agreed that we should burn an effigy of the head of OfWat, to show solidarity with others not so well situated.  Now we just need to find out what he looks like...

5.  The old chestnut about reunion with the La Tene Folk of Luton was discussed.  The Moot agreed that we are totally in favour of a charitable move towards reunion, on an equal and amicable basis, on a few minor conditions.  The La Tene Folk must accept that their druids are not real ones; accept they were totally in the wrong in the first place; adopt the wearing of ceremonial Hi Viz; and adopt the use of the Beaker Common Prayer on all occasions.  And sell off the lock-up garage they use for the ceremonies and move to a proper, spiritual location.  Like Husborne Crawley.

6.  In order to mitigate the impact on the Community's income of the current worldwide financial problems, we are to step-up production of doilies and corn dollies.  In order for this additional labour not to impact the spiritual aspects of the Community's work, we will have to take it out of sleep time.

7.  Questions were raised regarding the Evolution Mural that has been painted on the side of the Old Barn in celebration of Charles Darwin.  The archdruid indicated that it was just a co-incidence that the image representing the Home Counties Upper Class was on the very topmost bough of the Tree of Life. It could have been the members of the Upper Class in any part of England.


  1. Is burning effigies theraputic, perhaps I should try it!

  2. Very amusing, thank you. Bears a strange similarity to a meeting I was at in Westminster at about the same time. Unintentional, I'm sure...
