    Well done to the AJ for making this recording of the Presidential hustings available. The last question put to the candidates was arguably the most critical in that it reminded the candidates that in the last election only 15% of the membership voted, and 85% chose not to vote. Surely there must come a tipping point, say below 12.5%, when the validity of the election process triggers a review, of what members want of a president, and how the electoral system is revised to deliver not just what members want, but arguably what society needs - real leadership, and real change. For my money this begins and ends with a moral, economic, and socio-political case for protection of "function" of the Architect.
