Perhaps that's the idea ..

I agree.  No problems having a formal review, conducted properly in the
usual manner - suspending my usual skepticism re Supply Class outcomes. 

Fairly obvious with all the current flurry, there's AuDA board elections
coming up.  Two new Demand Class members, one supply, one Rep.  Assoc.

Hence the push by a few to discredit the Demand Class board members. 
Claims that Supply Class members 'represent' their customers is rather
like oil companies claiming to represent motorists' interests ..
