THE INTERNATIONAL ASSEMBLY
It is that time of the year again. The useless and meaningless Interntional
Assembly elections have taken place. Some individuals are there without
ever being elected. Some stooges have been prompted by the ACCA Head Office
to stand and are there without any contest. Others have barely mustered
votes of double figures. The reason for this show are twofold.
- The sham enables the ACCA
management to enact a show of pseudo democracy whilst there control of ACCA
goes unchallenged. The International Assembly has no powers to do anything.
It does not consult members and has no program of reforms. Not
surprisingly, ACCA members can't be bothered to vote for it.
- Those collaborating with
the sham are rewarded. The Interntional Assembly is about to have its annual
meeting. The delegates and their partners will spend all expenses paid
few days at a luxury hotel. They will have their photos taken with the ACCA's
unelected leadership and be made to feel important. The cost will be more
than £100,000. Yet the whole processes achieves absolutely nothing
for ACCA members or the challenges facing them. If anything, it is delaying
the inevitable reforms.
