5 I think you're underestimating the people who are participating to
6 this list. They're not all twats like me. Some of us maybe didn't know
7 about the history behind GLEP 39, but thanks to you kindly reminding
8 them they now know. Have you at one point wondered if by any chance
9 they would simply all disagree with you ?

14 True. On the other hand it was written as a GLEP. And whatever the
15 history behind it, there is no provision anywhere for a special
16 treatment of GLEP 39. Unless you can tell us where to find this
17 particular policy that I referred to as the eleventh commandment.
19 Now let me sum up. You want the council to have a strict application
20 of a policy that was written in a different time for a different issue
21 than the present one. On the other hand, you don't consider the
22 council has enough power to modify a GLEP based on your personal
23 interpretation of the history behind the GLEP in question. We've
24 certainly seen you more consistent than this before.
26 Denis.
