Cannot really blame the councillor for walking out. Prayers are important in keeping up the front, if you know what I mean. Here is a prayer that is often whispered in the corridors of power
' We thank you for this spineless electorate. May they always be happy to wallow in fear, procrastinating until death in the hope of a 'promised' life, after death. Because this life is not a life for them, but for us. May their taxes float our pensions and expenses requirements until our children take our place at this bountiful table. We thank you for the ignorant, the stupid and the cowardly. May they continue to be deluded until death closes their account forever and may their offspring never realise the game that is afoot.'
"And when ye pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, that love to stand and pray in the synagogues and corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men: Amen I say to you, they have received their reward." Matthew 6:5
