It is that kind of dishonesty and misrepresentation, and hostility, 
as shown by the poster of the message above, that destroys 
organisations, when people pig-headedly refuse to consider opinions 
different to their own (see bigotry), and refuse to considwer 
constructive suggestions.

You should check your assertions, to prevent your lies, before getting 
so hostile.

If you bother to read whatI have written, from the start, in this 
thread, you will see the falsehoods that you have written, and your 
misrepresentations of what I have written.

I, for one, hope that the incoming president of the organisation will be 
more honest and less bigoted, and, will be prepared to consider 
constructive suggestions, as opposed to the bigotry that has so far been 
demonstrated by those that insist that the oraganisation should be like 
the feral parliament, completely unrepresentative, and, completely 
disinterested in those whose interests it is supposed to serve.
