I've heard no convincing argument that reducing the board size or introducing term limits will help, and obviously they would harm continuity, with the potential to be disastrous if we reach the situation where nobody well qualified is actually allowed to stand. So as it stands, I'm likely to vote against any resolution at the EGM; I prefer the status quo, where I get to vote for the best candidates available without limitation.
