    Joe,I agree. I don't see why it couldn't be discussed here and a decision made by a majority of active NERB members. Cheers,Stephen

    That is my condition. But first, I think, we need some explanation why the E.C. removed Vin from the A.V. committee, in the first place. Seems like an almighty breakdown in communications.

    I think that's an absolute prerequisite and I will personally do my best to elicit an explanation at the Autumn Delegate Meeting next month and trust others will do likewise.Incidentally, at my branch last Sunday I suggested nominating Vin for the AV committee but was told by other members present that it was inconceivable that the present Executive Committee would re-appoint him…

    Can two branches nominate a person for the same post?

    To be clear, I take it you mean two branches nominating the same person for the same post.  Yes, of course and the more the merrier I would have thought.

    Gnome,In the absence of any other Party member willing to kick start the process of making Party videos, I don't see any other choice than to get Vin back on the AVC. Cheers,Stephen

    Stephen,I'm not aware of anyone else in the Party with the necessary expertise to make videos but I think it's highly unlikely, if my 'sources' are anything to go by, that this EC will re-appoint Vin without an intervention by the membership.  Will Tim and/or anyone else from NERB be coming to ADM next month?Dave

    Hi DaveI am intending to be at ADM as the NERB delegate. So I should be there. I do not think any other NERB comrades will be coming down.As a member of the AV committee I sent a link to Vin's video to a friend of mine who has beenin journalism and commercial video production for about 30 years, he is sympathetic to the party and said he would be willing to look at our material and offer advice, carry out any editing he thought might be needed, on an expenses only basis. His feedback was that he was very impressd with the production quality, he thought the video was very well put together and that there really wasn't really that much he could add to it that would justify the cost of doing it.Now I accept that my mate only has thirty years of experience working for the BBC, ITV and producing commercial videos for big corporations, which doesn't really compare with the EC's knowledge of the subject, however I do think his opinion might be worth bearing in mind.

    Good news indeed to hear of your intention to be at ADM as the NERB delegate, Tim; it's been a very long time since comrades from the North East were last represented at ADM or Conference.  And your friend's offer to help out with video production matters is also extremely welcome and even though he may have little to add to the process it will be great to have someone with his experience to call upon if or when necessary.

    Agree. Hope they put you up at least in a 4*. If other Mackems such as NL have no problem with sending a Geordie down, then nor do we.Have a good time, M8 By the way thanks for the feedback re the Video, Motivating Vin even more.

    Hope you have seen Vin's proposals on how to proceed. It has been sent all branches for considerationhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roJc5Ytu8LY

    Members may stay over at Head Office for the duration of ADM but the accommodation is far from 4*.  A number of rather uncomfortable camp beds are available but those intending to stay there are strongly advised to bring their own sleeping bags.

    Only Joking. Vin and I slept at HO years ago, it was just great to meet comrades, Also stayed at Anne Waite's , we had an omlette and coffee for breakfast.  Anyone else remember Anne's cuisuine?Vin also slept on Steve Coleman's  settee on one occasion

    Vin is taking a lot of shit on line and would like to go to ADM and confront his accusers but is not a member of a branch and can no way afford to travel and live in London for a couple of days. Staying over at HO would definitely result in his demise. Any suggestions?

    Don't even think about it; nothing useful will come out of it.
