Ah, it does appear that a flanking move is alive and well.
I thought you'd tried to get Ma kicked off by Good CO, now thats failed you do appear to be trying to achieve the same ends via Bad CO. I really hate it when my kids ask me for something and when I've said no go and ask their mum.
I may not always agree with Ma, but even if he is kicked off there is nothing to stop him coming back under another name. Better the Devil you know?
