Haha, congrats to everybody who are now on the council.

Yeah, the difference between parliamentarian style and ours is pretty stark. I'd actually like to try living under the former to see what it's like...

The bushy board?

Hopefully not the bristly board.

Congrats

Almost all voting methods currently in use suffer from problems such as tactical voting. [EDIT: I meant this in context of nations[/EDIT]
