    DOubt in usage

    Hi,

    We generally say :
    The council was unanimous.
    The council were divided.

    Now when we use the idiom ' at sixes and sevens', how do we use it?

    Which is correct?

    The council were at sixes and sevens.
    The council was at sixes and sevens.

    Thanks,
