RZ28 - The Defence Disaggregation Bill

WHEREAS the Ministries of Immigration, Home and Defence were combined into a single Ministry by legislation a few Clarks ago, partly in protest against the multiplication of "silly" or "sinecure" cabinet posts with no real authority, and partly to get around the Organic stipulation that we had to have a Defence Minister;

AND WHEREAS assuming that the Still Into This Amendment passes by referendum, the latter impulse to "aggregation" of Defence with the other ministries will no longer have that justification;

AND WHEREAS the current Foreign Minister would make a far better Defence Minister than the current Interior Ministry, who has other things to do;
