Please note also that not all constituencies are fairly 
representative.  For example, the TM constituency consists of only 
one TM/copyright interest with full voting privileges.  Dissenting 
views are often drowned out, not taken into account, etc.  Often 
times, as with this particular report, the "membership" of the 
constituency, to my knowledge, was not consulted, a vote was not 
asked for, etc.
