Thanks Garth,

As I replied to Sebastien, we will discuss it tomorrow.

I note that democracy is not only about 
elections, but also about vigourously debating 
issues, deciding on rules, and then following 
them. Although nonet of the people who have 
spoken up here were actively involved in the 
drafting of the RoP, all of these issues were 
thoroughly discussed and what we have in place 
were very conscious decisions attempting to 
balance what were and are difficult issues.
