Bonus: The Monsters at the Door
And now for a message from our sponsor
Previously: The Triverse was created by the accidental opening of portals, connecting 19th century Earth to a future version of itself and a world of dragons and magic. It’s now 1973 and tensions run high in the Kingdom of Great Britain as it heads towards an election year…
Opinion: The Monsters at the door
By Stanley Pullman
It is a truth long acknowledged that the British are a kind and tolerant people. But to every kindness there is a limit.
When the hand of friendship is so frequently batted away by immigrants from Palinor - so often here without genuine permits - what choice do we really have but to take a stand?
Our offer of healthcare, of employment, of a place in our society, is generous but misplaced. Free handouts only encourage the hordes coming through the portal every year.
Enough is enough
Let's face it. They won't learn our language. They don't pay their taxes. They undercut our wages and send money back through the portal, diminishing our economy.
Did you know that over 65% of all arrests are of koth? They are a danger to our society - and, yes, we know that's a shocking sentence to read. We wish we didn't have to write it. It's not the politically correct thing to say. We say it not to be controversial or rude, but to speak the truth.
Because nobody else will.
What, then, is the answer?
Change is the answer
The blame here does not belong to the koth, or the aen'fa, or the Palinese humans. They have their own beliefs and reasons, and what they do in their dimension is none of our business. All we ask is that they respect our world and don't interfere with our way of life.
They're a symptom. The real problem is right here, at home, in the Houses of Parliament. In the so-called elected officials that claim to represent you.
Tories. Liberals. Labour. They're all the same. Out-dated terms for out-dated parties. It doesn't matter who you vote for, because you'll be getting the same weary old politician every time. The colour of their rosette makes no difference to their inherently weak policies.
A total change is needed. You already know the question. 'Why is my life not getting better?'
We are the answer. It's just common sense.
You may not have heard of us before. Don't worry, you will.
It's time to take back our city, take back our country, take back our empire and take back our world.
Join us. Think Earth First.

Thanks for reading! Went for something a bit different this week. I’d always intended to do semi-regular ‘bonus’ chapters, which would break away from the main narrative to show off other corners of the Triverse, but it’s non-trivial to put them together. This seemed like an opportune moment, so here we are.
Right, let’s jump into some…
