I still don't know what EXACTLY I am going to do about this, other than (obviously) put myself forward for federal conference committee to try and prevent it happening again. I also endorse the candidature of Alastair Calder McGregor, who will be standing on a similar platform.

One think I will question is the probity of the decision: can this be put before the federal appeals panel because in passing the buck around the alphabet soup of federal committees to overrule a sovereign decision of conference the FCC may have outstepped the bounds of their powers? FAC is not, after all, a higher authority, nor directly elected by conference...

I may have to have a look if this decision was taken ultra vires.
