Rule P.2.3.3 and its discontents

Assiduous defenders of lay democracy bore the scorn of senior officials as this afternoon's Conference session drew to a close, as they objected to the unilateral action of the President in altering the order of business for the Rules debate.

The Rule Book is clear that the order of business is a matter for the Standing Orders Committee to determine and for Conference to approve.

The price of lay democracy is eternal vigilance, and SOC are now having to consider what to do about this. If Card Vote One passes Rule Amendment 11 then the NEC should withdraw 13 and 14 should be put to Conference. (IMHO)
