  26. Roo:

  27. Jenny husts for Martin, Owen husts for Roo and Martin husts for RON (while being out of the room since he was also a candidate).

  28. Votes that "Roo has to ask for permission before slipping into Kanga's pocket" Passed.

  29. The election produces a tie between Martin and RON, unfortunately a revote (as required by the constitution) between Martin and RON is not taken, therefore the rest of the election for this post is constitutionally invalid.

  30. Votes to let a visitor decide the tie: Passed.

  31. Votes to censure Jenny for being a horrible bully: Passed.

  32. Claire "I don't (something or other that is unreadable but looks like "out in") jumping in my pouch".

  33. Ben - "And you'll have to scrub him down and give him a bath every night". (I would just like to bring peoples attention to chapter VII in the old testament: where it is in fact Piglet who is given a bath by Kanga. In fact at one point in this chapter Piglet is bouncing up and down in Kanga's pocket while Rabbit picks up Roo).

  34. The visitor decides to appoint the Queen as Roo thus making the election even more invalid in the eyes of the constitution.

  35. Martin is made Roo in residence, he then resigns, it is then realised the post was never created in the first place.

  47. Next weeks meeting in H1.
