For this position, I needed to find someone who will put what is proper before what is popular, and who will fight for justice. I have picked someone who is known for his nonpartisan approach and I am proud to nominate Afleitch as our next Attorney General.



You know the drill.

How would you have responded to the recent Dibble controversy?  Would you have taken the same actions that the most recent AG took?

As Attorney General, would you appeal the ruling of the Mideast abortion statute to the Supreme Court?

What will you do to promote activity in the Supreme Court and SC Bar?

Article 6: Rules on Presidential Nominations
[edit] Section 1: General Statements on Nominees
1. From time to time, various nominations may be made by the President requiring the advice and consent of the Senate for approval.

2. These nominations may be brought to the floor of the Senate immediately by the PPT and may skip the processes dealing with Legislation Introduction, as so laid out in Article 3 of this Resolution.

3. Nominees under consideration specifically do not count towards the restrictions laid out towards in Article 3, Section 2, Clause 2 in limiting the amount of legislation on the Senate floor at one time.

[edit] Section 2: Rules on Senate Debate of Nominees
1. For each Presidential nomination, the PPT must give each Nominee under consideration an amount of debate and question time in front of the Senate of no less than twenty-four (24) hours and no greater than seventy-two (72) hours.

2. If debate and questions with regards to the Nominee under consideration have halted for longer than twenty-four (24) hours, any Senator may call for a motion to vote on the presumptive Nominee.

3. After seventy-two (72) hours time, debate and question time shall cease, and the PPT must call for a vote on the Nominee under consideration.

4. If needed, an injunction may be brought by a Senator to keep debate and question time on the Nominee under consideration open for another forty-eight (48) hours, after which time the debate and question time shall end for good and a vote shall be called. This injunction must be seconded by another Senator.

[edit] Section 3: Rules for Voting on Nominees and the Changing of Votes
1. Once a motion has been brought to bring the Nominee under consideration to a vote or debate and question time has publicly ended, the PPT shall open a vote on said Nominee. This vote shall last for a maximum of five (5) days during which time the Senators must vote. Any and all Senators who do not vote will be considered to have abstained.

2. If needed, an injunction may be brought by a Senator to keep voting on the Nominee under consideration open for another forty-eight (48) hours after which time the voting shall close. This injunction must be seconded by another Senator.

3. Until a Nominee under consideration has garnered enough votes to pass or fail, no Senator shall be prohibited from changing his or her vote on the Nominee. Once said Nominee has garnered enough votes to pass or fail, all Senators who have voted will be prohibited from changing their votes.


In my experience, there are only a precious few who actually "know the drill". Tongue

Thank you. I am happy to take questions.

I will try and take each of the questions as they come

How would you have responded to the recent Dibble controversy?  Would you have taken the same actions that the most recent AG took?

Suprisingly several years ago I argued in favour of the ability of regions to issue their own 'promissory notes' when the matter arose in the South. I argued that essentially they were in effect little different from loyalty cards and gift tokens but accepted the decision that went against us. (Atlasia v Southeast I 2010).

What is interesting is that the Southeast's law very carefully tip-toes around the decision made by the Supreme Court. For example. the 'Dibble' is not issued by the government; it is issued by private companies. They are merely exchanged. In this instance, the Southeast could argue that the Dibble does not constitute a currency and is no different from a gift certificate. The Southeast however were not given the opportunity to argue their case.

I think that the actions of the AG were excessive. Any charges against any person or body should have been brought to the Supreme Court in accordance with the spirit of the Consolidated Criminal Justice Act.

More than likely yes. In part because I feel that the judgement itself impacts upon how we play the game; we can no longer assume anything in terms of what is 'carried over' from the USA. And to answer the second question the case gives to court something to do.

What about your actions as governor regarding an appointment to the assembly you denied one applicant when you appointed two others whose idealogical views were remarkably similar. Some would think you held a personal vendetta against one of the applicants.

You shouldn't refer to yourself in the third person Smiley

I will re-iterate. Someone who is on record as saying Winston Churchill was a Trotskyist, thinks that Obama had an 'Islamic upbringing', that being gay is not in the 'best intrest of conduct in a free society' does not deserve to hold an office in Fantasyland or any other land.
