Nick,

What we need here is a good old fashioned British fudge.

Lets look at the British Democratic systems as a guide to the future of the Leica Forum.

British democracy is often held in high regard, yet our second chamber - The House of Lords are completely unelected. Similarly our Sovereign, the Queen, has ultimate power over Bills passed by the House of Lords/House of Commons, [she even has the power to go to war] and of course she is also unelected.

Our great democracy is not pure, our constitution is a fudge, based on years of power struggles, compromises and unwritten laws.

And yet.......and yet it - kinda works the way it is.

Haha! Are you proposing a class system?

Lol !!! I was thinking more of the tolerance of an imperfect system.

But, I was looking forward to having our own King Louis d' Objectif!!

I am a Frenchman and living in the US!... After what I read here, I feel like making myself an English Shepard's Pie for tonight!

Louis,

English folklore dictates a shepherd's pie must have a crisp mashed potato crust, ideally mixed with sprinkled cheese. Of course the dish is improved with a good French vin rouge
