A new king was recently elected as Borough Mayor. The new king sat on his throne and looked at his chests filled with gold. He summoned all of his subordinates to his alter, and as he glanced at the guillotine in the corner he told them. These chests do not have enough gold to pay homage to my greatness. You tax collectors go out and bring me more gold. First they went to all the young and strong people of the Borough and took gold from them and returned to the King. The king looked at the gold and laughed and said “You bring this small amount of gold to measure my greatness. Go out and get more gold.” “This will require you write a new law your greatness” stated one of the tax collectors. So the new king wrote the new law to go and take more gold from the old and from those who have fought to secure his kingdom. Will the peasants in the fields allow this so called great king to continually take or will they revolt and show their disdain for this new king that sits on his throne. The Nobels (Borough Assembly members) will have a decision very soon to make. To be a Nobel or a King in this borough takes the peasants approval. Would a Nobel King steal an old ladies purse?
