Admissions of grotesque and dangerous overloading of meeting rooms are rife globally!
Here's an admission by the 'Grand Poohbah':
“Is that actually brethren up the back there, or is that a mirror of the people behind me? Are you up there? Are you real people? Okay, it’s good to see you. I never expected Woodlands to be like this, l have to admit. I thought I was just coming to what they call a relatively full hall.”

“Fourteen-fifty. It was built for about seven hundred or something, was it? So we just hope the people don’t make their entry, Mr. Russell. It’s not likely in Woodlands. By the time they hear about it, they probably have to come from Winnipeg, so we play for time, is that it?”

“Sydney, we’re just crooks, we’re crooks. Sydney is just full of out-and-out crooks. So that’s my job in Sydney, I’ve got to straighten out the Crooks, that’s a full-time job, I tell you. That’s why I get away every now and again, because otherwise you get too busy, got too many crooks to deal with. That’s the truth. You don’t believe that, but that’s the truth.”
