Chaos at Science Show!

July 20, 1885 ·

Attempts by Her Majesty’s Department for the Advancement of Sciences to stage a roadshow showcasing its work on the Clockwork Project were thwarted by a Trade Unionis demonstration at the Latitude Festival, last week.

Members of the Union for the Casual Labourer, supported by Jack Ludd, Editor of The Spanner, travelled to Suffolk to protest in front of the Science roadshow. During the course of the day, the picketing unionists coerced members of the public into spying on the beleaguered scientists, who were barricaded inside a marquee.

At one point secret papers and scientific instruments were smuggled out to trade unionists, who put them on display to highlight the hypocrisy of the whole event.

The Tomorrow’s World Today Roadshow is the departments to showcase its Clockwork technology and rally public support around the project. The automata, being developed for workplace and domestic conditions, has led to an industrial dispute over job security.

Several artifacts handed over to the trade unionists include notes addressed to a group called The Men That Will Be Blamed For Nothing, and letters mentioning a mineral associated to the Saryn War.

There’s no proof that this is the same substance that led to the disastrous expedition to Kazakstan, but the revelation is bound to reignite concerns that Advancement of Science remains the only government department outside parliamentary regulation.

One eye witness claims to have followed one scientist into the Enchanted Forest, where he was given several confidential papers relating to the ‘synaptic relay’ work on the Clockwork Project.

It is rumoured that the scientist had a crisis of conscience and handed a file of secret documents to the Trade Unionists outside the roadshow.

His whereabouts are not known, but we aim to bring you the latest news on the debacle as soon as we have it.

This is the second time that the Department for the Advancement of Sciences has run into trouble at its public events. Guests stole the very first generation Clockwork Heart at the first show in May.
