The Dame could see Pooter's point: it does rather seem as if the Dame is actually a bit of a Queenmaker.
But having been responsible for pressuring Pooter she now expects Buffy to invite her to many prestigious events over the course of the Mayoral year;after all, under the Dame's influence, the normal Mayoral selection process was abandoned in a most unusual way. And the Dame does know how to hold her knife and fork.....
|Thank You Dame..I owe you one|
Well done Buffy!
