    With the WHHR AGM imminant, perhaps this is a last chance to take a different direction and move towards working with reality.

    Let us hope that some one declares peace

    Ferengi Rules of Acquisition: Rule 76. Every once in a while, declare peace. It confuses the hell out of your enemies.

    you never know, it might work....

    Rule of Acquisition Number 62 - The riskier the road, the greater the profit
    Rule of Acquisition Number 190 - Hear all, trust nothing!

    (190...quite fitting...)

    So had I but couldn't work out which variation had been invoked. Was it Burnett's Central Line Exception or Lyttleton's Last Revenge?

    It would appear that they are playing MC on an old board with the circle line still running in a circle not as now as a spiral.

    OK, I don't intend to leave this derailed, as I started it by quoting RoA No 76. Shall we get back to the topic?
    (if you all want I can start threads discussing RoAs and playing MC - any takers?)

    What I think the OP was trying to get at, is that is high time a peace process was initiated, but perhaps a regime change is required? or have I misunderstood?

    I agree with you Sir, would you like the job as it would make many people very happy if this was sorted out?
