Council meeting poker

Why bother to go to the Council meeting tonight? It’s a done deal. Word on the street is that the Councillors, at the meeting on the 14th, for the most part were prepared to recommend the proposed budget. This they did in the mousiest way possible, each wanting to know the others minds before they would declare for or against,  provoking laughter from the pitiful handful of townsfolk in attendance. Only one Councillor, after asking the others to declare, kept his cards to his chest. We may actually go tonight just to see if he shows the others up  by panning this inflated budget – completely safely of course, since the others have shown their cards, and he knows it will pass.
