  1. The Dude goes into politics - the hardest job in the world...

    Now, if by any chance you have missed the previous chapters, there's a summary here at chapter 10.

    However, this new chapter is more of the sort of personal thoughts rather than an account of what's going on and I'd like to start from this comment I made back at chapter 9:
