Thank you Mr Badlad, precisely the kind of answer that was being looked for.

I am disappointed that the current secretary lied to me in this way especially if it means I cannot run.
There is clearly a perception amongst some BCA Council members (not to mention the wider membership) that constitutional matters/procedures are used selectively by some council members depending on the situation. I don't want to get drawn into how much it may be a perception and how much it may be reality, but it would seem very much in the interests of Council to avoid such a perception, regardless of how it comes about.
