Publish Vin, be my guest.
By the way, it was in order, that upon a motion, moved, seconded and voted upon, which motion was carried, that Standing Orders were set aside and a member raised issues of "urgency" and that these were discussed.No personal leanings or friendship came into it.
More obfuscation Vin?Were you aware, that many posts ago, I actually stood down as chair? All your silly obfuscatory, smoke and mirrors have been for nought. You could have just selected a new Chair1 Oh happy days.
By the way, the PM's refered to were shared with other members of the Branch, not just SP. I've got an inbox full of them, so much for "Private Messages!!!
And by the way Vin, I have carried out the role of Chair in an impersonal way.It is you, moreover, through obfuscation, who has brought the meeting divided and embarassed the Branch and it was 2 members, I think you know who they are, who accused SP of bullying, and then there were the threats of course!!!
Personal Grievances Vin? You mean threats towards SP surely
More personal attacks Vin?
The only accusations are comming from you SP. I suggest you stop them This is a lie. Setting aside standing orders was moved, seconded and voted upon. The motion carried. The reason this happened was to discuss accusations of bullying, towards SP, as is well documented on the previous pages of this thread. So I, suggest, it is "you", who needs to stop, in this instance, rewriting "history".As for this; the motion for the 2 Form Fs have been seconded and the chair ignored standing orders by not allowing the motion to be put to be discussed and put to a vote.This is incorrect. You were told that Forms F would be considered under any other business. It had not, at the time the two Form's F were raised, been decided by the meeting to overturn the Setting aside of Standing Orders, so de facto, the meeting was still considering the issues that Standing Orders had been set aside for, vis a vis, accusations of bullying and the threats that went with them.In summation, get your facts right.

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 accommodationTopNo, and I'll say this one, last, time, there are "NO" Standing Orders" for "Online" meetings. 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!!!

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..
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.
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.
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.
