Man is shown into room where man is sitting at a desk
Welcome Mr Ahh…
Yes Mr Khan, please have a seat.
And you’re here today regarding your
application for leader of the world.
Good, Good, well, as you know, we’ve
received a lot of interest in the post
and, looking at your work history you
are clearly a strong candidate of the
role, we just wanted to bring you in
to discuss some suitability issues.
Dot some eyes, cross some tees, put
some flesh on the bone so to speak.
Of course, I completely understand.
Any trouble finding the place?
There was a bit of traffic.
Sure, Sure. Well, now, if we can begin.
Can you tell me, in your own words,
why you feel you are right for the
Well, I’ve always been a go getter,
ever since I was a child; I knew I was
right. I understand that, in terms of
subjective reality, everything alive

equal and just society.

It will come to me.
You are, of course, aware that this
position does not come with a pension.
Very well, it seems like everything
is in order. This is marvellous, I
hope you knew that for me this was
always just a formality.
Please go on through, your father has
been expecting you.
