Dear Edward, you should have just taken the Marokai approach and avoided the court altogether. It would have worked. Wink

With regard to the cabinet:

1. If Napoleon's resignation is in doubt, he is dismissed as GM. I plan to make an appointment once the V.P. situation has been settled.

2. I have made an inquiry with the SoIA, HagridOfTheDeep, as to his availability and interest in continuing in the position. I will update sometime in the near future.

1. Napoleon is dismissed as GM if his resignation is in doubt.

3b. ABAC shall be an independent non departmental government body which shall help to arbitrate in industrial disputes, by mediating between the relevant departments, and by resolving industrial disputes before they lead to strikes
3c. ABAC shall also be a free public service open to all private sector companies who wish to use its services.
