Problem to some extent has been the absence of a tranparently equitable elections structure. Delegates are all very well but many go up with a mandate then two AGMs later they've morphed into mouthpieces for the status quo reporting dictats down the line rather than driving change o behalf of those that sent them. One member one vote is a better way with all votes counted by one of those charities that do the same job for the trades unions. Any member free to stand for any office with their manifestos sent to all voting members. That's the only way we'll get away from these self perpetuating cartels who seem to have taken over the SNU of late.

Another way is to hit them in the pocket - again it is up to the membership.

Churches can withhold their affiliation fees. Class B members can resign their membership.

As I've said before - "Shepherds may change but sheep remain sheep."

"" worse than traditional churches, even down to the Ministry and hymns.""

That reminded me of a staunch SNU church I once visited. The hymns dated from 1595 in the SNU approved book, the Princples were monotonously recited and the general air was of 'well it's Sunday'. Approximately threequarters of the seats were empty. All that was needed was some robes on the High Heid yins and hey presto the 17th Century was revisited.

I'd guess that the Greart Spirit and helpers had already legged it to the nearest hostelry in search of Life.

Just seen a comment on the PN website that says everything that needs to be said about SNU top brass.

"I am fully of the opinion that if an SNU committee was tasked with crossing an empty field they would tread in the only cowpat for miles."

Bang on!
