Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


So May leftas she thought, but we know differenther Aunt Arabella and her Russian friend Oyzell sitting in the snug while she went to clean up and change out of her gardening clothes, which gave Maude and Oyzell a chance to discuss the situation: "it seems that the Nazis won the war, God what a horror!" said Maude with a shudder, and Oyzell asked: "does that reference to Reichsmarschall mean Goering is in charge of Britain?" but Maude couldn't say: "either way, if that AKA fellow who was tagging along with MacFarlane and his pals turns up here, that would put the cat among the pigeons," and Oyzell nodded: "two Goerings! that would be unacceptable, presumably one would be regarded as a usurper, or a plant,"which might be good if it starts an internal war, some kind of seppuku which would give the Resistancesurely there has to be a Resistance?—an opportunity, to divide and rule or at any rate encourage the people to rise up," but Maude wasn't convinced: "we like to think that the British would, as Churchill put it, fight on the landing grounds, on the beaches, in the hills, but if in this Universe, the Germans won the war, that can't have been enough, presumably they control all of Europe, have a look for a newspaper that might tell us something, we can't very well ask May, there'd be too much explaining," and they each began to look around the room, Maude in the magazine holder that stood on the floor beside the large radiogram, while Oyzell checked the drawers in the sideboard, which is where she found a copy of the Border Telegraph for the week before and flicking through it she said: "a lot of rubbish about keeping a lookout for unusual men behaving badly, and informing the Mayor, someone called Roland Boland, ever heard of him?" and May laughed, actually I do, I think his daughter was in my year at High School, he was something of a local Percy Edwards, used to give renditions of bird calls, whenever there was a show, alongside the singers and dancers and jugglers and comedians, there'd always be Roland Boland doing the Robin, Blackbird and Heron, it was ever the same, he never added any new ones, or branched into animals, just birdsoh lots of them—but once you've heard his routine three or four times, that's enough! so he's the Mayor, then, is he?" and Oyzell nodded, and something else, it says here that there is a newly opened Dataveillance Unit in the Corn Exchange, who are charged with rooting out Enemies of the State in Whatever Form they Come!"
