“Everyone is welcome to our Community Celebration tonight at 19.00 hrs. At that time hopefully our Mayor will have ended his ongoing speech, and our own Rune Bengthelin will send off a spectacular firework.”
So said the chairman of the local government board to the congregation. And everyone dispersed and went home to theirs. All except the Mayor, who was still standing bravely, holding his speech.
