The former Prime Minister, Mr. Wentworth Lane, was defeated in the recent elections. He is now retiring from political life and has gone abroad. My friend, Patrick, has always been a fanatical opponent of Mr. Lane's Radical Progressive Party. After the elections, Patrick went to the former Prime Minister's house. When he asked if Mr. Lane lived there, the policeman on duty told him that since his defeat, the ex-Prime Minister had gone abroad. On the following day, Patrick went to the house again. The same policeman was just walking slowly past the entrance, when Patrick asked the same question. Though a little suspicious this time, the policeman gave him the same answer. The day after, Patrick went to the house once more and asked exactly the same question. This time, the policeman lost his temper. 'I told you yesterday and the day before yesterday,' he shouted, 'Mr. Lane was defeated in the elections. He has retired from political life and gone to live abroad!"

'I know,' answered Patrick, 'but I love to hear you say it!'

前任首相,文特沃斯巷,在最近的大选中被击败。他现在正在退出政治生活,并已出国了。我的朋友,帕特里克,一直是一个狂热的对手莱恩先生的激进党。大选结束后,帕特里克来到了前首相的房子。当他询问莱恩先生是否住在那里时,值班的警察告诉他,他失败后,这位前首相出国了。第二天,帕特里克去了。昨天的那位警察正从门口慢慢走过,当帕特里克问同样的问题。这次虽然有点怀疑,警察还是给了他同样的回答。之后的一天,帕特里克去了一次问了同样的问题。这一次,警察发火了。"我告诉你昨天和前天,"他喊道,"莱恩先生在大选中被击败。他已经退出了政界去国外了!""我知道,"帕特里克回答说,"可我就是喜欢听你说!"
