Quandary Resolution 1369
El Nino, palliate, guttersnipe, indemnity
As a special concession, and a minor palliative to the rigours of a hard winter, the civic authorities declared entry to the municipal baths over the Christmas holidays free to the under sixteens, quickly drawing every penniless guttersnipe from the surrounding tenements into the warmly welcoming waters of 'El Nino' - the largest pool, and with a wave machine to boot - inciting the local gentry immediately to seek indemnity against their own aquatic progeny contracting scurvy, rickets, and dropped aitches.
