  1. Agreed - it's not moving at all in the picture...

    It's quite satisfying watching someone shoot their mouth off and then stub their toe :-D

    Seriously? It's no wonder then... ;-)

    Yes yes the silence is tacit agreement with the pet paranoid tin foilers that ETNZ are devil spawn looking to fuck other challengers. :-)

    I get the metaphor, but I'm still not sure it's that accurate... not that I can think of a better one :-/ what is NoR?

    Why would referencing your president be an insult? Projecting much? The current US president is simply someone that does indeed make "sweeping statement(s) that deliberately excludes important words... and replaces them with baseless hyperbole" and as a result I'm sure he'd be proud of anyone else that does the same. That was my point. "similar vision" BTW FTR I am partisan when it comes to Trump - he is a clueless fuckwit and whilst all main contenders across the aisles were all pretty much flawed, he was by fucking miles the worst option!

    Nice dodge, but to be clear *every* democracy has some figure able to veto decisions made by participants... to be clear, like in those democracies, that power is typically not wielded unless necessary, and furthermore, your assertion that the DoR can lose this election is not accurate, they are not up for election so they cannot lose it - they are the president / head of state / governor general presiding over the election of another party, just like what happens in a general election in democratic nations... You're worried about what ETNZ might do with that power, I get it, but the power itself is not abnormal nor evil, nor does it deviate from any functional democratic structure in governments today. As far as the AC goes well... as I said at the beginning... play out some scenarios that ETNZ and their legal teams would forced them to consider and see if you would be comfortable as the DoR having a CoR bail and then whoever is left amongst the defenders having automatic rights to determine the new CoR.That could be *very* messy, and the DoR should have the ability to clean it up - bearing in mind that if they decide to do something unpopular with the defenders then they might not have any left for a regatta.

    Hmmm right, so again, I'm right in thinking that you are UK-based? which I'm sure you'd (as do I) regard as a democracy? In which case can I suggest you read up on a little thing known as a Constitutional Monarchy? ;-)

    Don't let facts about simple organisational arrangements when the regatta is underway get in the way of someone having a good piss now ;-) All the cats and dogs and hogs need to get the sand out of their knickers...

    TC I *think* you might be based in the UK, but I could be wrong... Do you not think the UK is a democracy? Or the US? or the likes of AU or NZ?

    Nice sweeping statement that deliberately excludes important words like CoR and replaces them with baseless hyperbole... your president would be proud...

    Actually worse... some say sold his soul and did a deal with the devil, and what then if he *still* doesn't win?

    My statement was localised to the sailing industry, and to Hoggie's own commentary... But having said that, your own suggestion that the USA is the most innovative country the world has seen is frankly also an amazing statement - I'd be keen to determine by which dimension you are measuring that by?

    You're getting there... think through some scenarios as to how this could play out... and why ENTZ preserving veto is important for a proper AC
