    Vin, as you are no doubt aware, Time moved that we proceed to next business (not, can we please move on) which is not a motion.You, yourself voted for as did Linda, as did Time, he after all moved the aforementioned motion. That leaves 4 members, in attendance who have yet to vote, myself among them.Regardless of that, next on the Agenda will be;5.EC minutes 6. Annual Conference/ADM 7.Correspondence and business arising there fromThe votes on Forms A/F will come under any other business, Item !0. When we get the rest of the Votes in, they will be published and we can move to the EC minutes.

    Regarding post 197, we will move to next business when all members have voted. It is not up to you to stipulate what happens when, in the meeting Comrade.

    April's Branch meeting has been anything but "usual". When the votes are all in, there are still 4 to come, then we can move to, as i have stated Item 5 EC Minutes. Patience.

    Indeed, and as you are aware, we have extended the meeting to accomodate our needs. Its Bank Holiday tomorrow, International Workingmans Day, we can stretch to then if needs be. The beauty of Online meetings is "flexibility"As for it all being a matter of record, I'll have to check..

    There is no set closing time. In the past we have had set time parameters each day but for some reason that was not done this time. As for "standing Orders", there are none for Online meeting, they being a fairly recent innovation.

    I suggest you study the SO. In fact I would suggest all members have a look at them. I posted them as soon as I became secretary so they are there. as I say I must go off line now and thank for the comradely accommodation

We are the first Branch to attempt this format. The "Standing Orders" you may, or may not have posted, were for live, face to face, meetings.That is my final word!!!
