Tragedy or Farce?

Karl Marx said history always repeats itself, the first as a tragedy, the second time as a farce.

Well if my experience of the Local Government Ombudsman is anything to go by, it started as a tragedy[1] in 1997 and looks like it's going to end in a farce [2] in 2008, he is right.

[1] My first complaint about the problems created by the Councils. (A tragedy of a Local Government Ombudsman's investigation.)

[2] My second complaint about the failure of the Councils to correct their earlier problems. (A farce of a Local Government Ombudsman's investigation.)

I wonder if Karl Marx ever considered what comes next?
