Mary has put a lot of effort into doing exactly what both you and Brenda are suggesting, but you keep arguing about the new model constitution which is not our new constitution.

Sylvia, you must think I'm stupid.  Let me state, again, that I have not 
read the model instead of the proposed constitution.  It's really too 
bad of you to dismiss me in this way.

I'm sure Mary has put in a lot of effort, because I have, too, to 
confirm the issues I've been decrying.  I don't know what process she 
used, but I say again that the new constitution contains a raft of 
changes which each need to be explicitly stated and justified.  I don't 
believe you've checked what I've said, and I urge you to do so.  If you 
did this you may form the view that our current "as published" 
constitution would meet the new Act's requirements if we added a section 
stating the financial year.  Surely that must be the simplest way of 
changing the financial year, which is the specific reason this process 
was embarked upon?
