"Right. Because either of those scenarios make perfect sense, really." But, only in the paranoid minds of those three. Padma shook her head. Honestly, the biggest problem they had right now were the three idiots thinking they could lead people any better now than they had been able to during the war...from hundreds of miles away and while on the run. "I wonder if any of them would know what to do with themselves if they could be convinced there was more to life than war."
Padma rolled her eyes. "Never mind that there are times and places for surnames, they have a very casual relationship with proper formality. I've even caught myself doing it lately just because almost everyone here seems to have picked up their habit."
Listening, Padma found herself looking for potential holes in the plan. But, it mostly made sense and wouldn't disrupt much of anything else already going on that she could see. "Consolidating and expanding non-governmental work seems sensible and would be far more productive. I don't object to trying to make society more equal, at least not the way some here talk about it." And she didn't mean the three in charge. Yes, Harry was the Minister, but everyone knew those three worked as a unit. "But, there's no need for all of this structure. Peter and I asked to be allowed to do research into the castle and I've got an herbologist and a healer in my department now because they had to be part of the Ministry somehow? It's getting to the point where there isn't enough work at these jobs for the number of people we have." And if she felt that way after only being there about a month, how much worse was it going to get as more people arrived?
