Jolley the swagman Back at Carney Carney 18/1
« on: December 13, 2013, 10:09:55 AM »
The detective ushered Jolley into a room that looked like the bridge of the Enterprise. The detective seated Jolley. “The new commissioner will be with you in a moment. He disappeared to a panel on the side.

Jolly sat facing a wall wide flat TV, A camera on the top of it seemed to be aimed at Jolley.

The screen came on and Jolley was looking into the face of the new Commissioner.

A mixture of emotions flooded him. He sat there silently.

Somewhere from a speaker that gave the impression the sound was coming from the figure on the screen crackled.

The Commissioner was sitting proud and straight in the braided uniform. The gold gilt flashing in the light. “If you call me Sir. I'll come there personally and hit you with my hand bag.”

Jolley grinned. “Yes marm.”

“Cut that out Jolley we have been through to much together just call me Jenkins.”

Jolley laughed. “Congratulations. I always knew you had the talent to go to the top.”

The figure in the screen smiled. “I was on the way out till you took me under your wing I owe it all too you.”

Jolley smiled. “Then you will let me retire. And live my life out fishing.”

The Com shook her head. “I hear you are on the brink of an arrest there...”

The swagman drew himself up. “I'm not sure we have the right suspect. Things don't add up.”

The figure shrugged. “Can you speed things up. We need you to sort out the Maleny muck up.”

“I'm not leaving here till I'm sure we have got the right man.”

Jenkins looked at him. “If the former publican. The man you call the Yorkey dork is about to be taken into custody by immigration and deported as an illegal migrant. He has over stayed his three month visa by thirteen years.

“What about his wife?”

“His so called wife. Three states are fighting over her. All claim she was a top madam there.”

Jolley nodded. “How did my recommendation sit with the Public house  committee?”

“The Race committee will be issued a full licence.”

Jolley beamed. “Great news. Well back to the grind.”

I'm sure the local women will be glad the publican will be deported.

Nice surprise about Jenkins.  She earned her wings with Jolley's help.

So at the "present" time, Jolley can stand to be inside in a room?

Lots of intrigue hinted at here.
