I find this somewhat of a non-sequitur; you think the arguments for continuing beyond the next election are as strong or stronger than continuing up to the next election??

That is the background we are working with; that dual representation is not permitted.  We’re trying to deal with the case that arises when it occurs as a result of change of representation.

We discussed this in the process TF as I recall, and it didn’t seem likely we’d get consensus on going that far: not least because Chaals has a formal objection that we’ve gone too far already unless other major changes are made. And as I said, if we allow double representation for full terms as a result of change of affiliation, this immediately raises the question of why we should not allow it as a result of election, i.e. abandon the rule completely. I think your compromise naturally puts us at the end of the spectrum, rather than in the middle of it. Chaals already thinks my compromise goes too far; you think it doesn’t go far enough…
