Revision to Ministerial Leadership Polity

As we move towards the "First Reading" of the Revision to Ministerial Leadership Polity, I just offer a few thoughts:

Obviously a lot of people worked very hard on this.

However, it is extremely cumbersome and complicated. 

At this present time, I believe an undertaking of this magnitude needs to be put on hold.

We need more unity before we can make such major changes.  Questions about what agenda might be lurking in all that text need to be answered.

And the unity that I hear our leadership calling for is only going to come when trust is earned. 

With all that has happened, that is going to take quite a while.
