The long-standing debate surrounding the 150-mile rule is entirely
unconnected to that of a Principality.  There are supporters of the
principality that are on both sides of that issue; I'm sure there are
non-supporters of the principality idea that are on both sides of that

The Steering Committee has no position on the issue, and certainly no
"goal" to change it.

And, as Evan (I believe) pointed out, Kingdom Law still has precedence
over any Principality Law.

This has all been hashed out before, five months or more ago.

Can I be any more clear on this issue?

The 150-mile rule has had its proponents and its critics since it was
instituted in the reign of Barry and Simone, 10 years or so ago.  I
suspect that particular debate will continue whether Stilhavn becomes
reality or stays a dream.
