How to stand three on a milking stool. Or, how a hung parliament might actually work! The thing about a milking stool is that there really is only room for one, however that is always going to be a precarious postion as with only three legs you can easily get pushed off. Standing three is possible, with a little cooperation! If each places a foot on the stool in a gap between two legs, hold hands tightly, leans back and slowly, together stands up, the tension between each will create a much stronger position on the stool. There is one small snag, it requires trust and cooperation – are they up to it I wonder?
