Pilkington’s Gamble : Scene 5

“Thank you all for returning so promptly.  If we could have a show of hands, please, on your initial assessment as to the plausibility.  Thank you.  If I could ask you do similar for the likelyhood of success.  Thank you.  I witnessed no hesitation, none of that Stalinist “vote with the majority” tactic.  I think we can allow oursleves a moment of self-congratulation for a job well done.  We look forward to seeing you all at next week’s Monday morning meeting.  Let’s hope the status quo out there can be maintained for the next seven days.  In the meantime if you have any questions or feedback – could we ask you to contact VP via the usual channels.”
