The village residents of Oxfordshire take center stage in the second scene of "An Election." 

The inn keeper on the left is counting her windfall from hosting election festivities. The landlords of the Royal Oak and the Crown inns are bribing a party official to host the next ‘treat’ for voters. There is a mob fighting at the Crown and while a chappie is sawing off the inn’s sign, and a guy in a red coat is shooting into crowd from the second floor.
