Well, to reply to Earl Dafydd's concerns, I suppose I should move item 9 
up, though I had hoped to show by the nature of this discussion that 
opposition to principalities is not composed of intragenent reactionaries 
but of concerned, thoughtful, loyal subjects to the Crown who have the 
best interests of the Kingdom at heart and who can be persuaded by 
reasoned proposals.

As for item number 3, Lord Evan has thoughtfully nailed that one on the 
head already.
