Nolan outfit without its controversies I think Israelis on the times on his knees tight. That's new allegations. Last week cannot go well let's have a look at look at it and see what seeing what it's like cannot go out. But any suggestions as to -- how it might be in Europe and the and and this relates to treat that with some but the priest. But the structuring terms of government and we start of the congress yeah. -- -- -- -- -- to have Pete as if it was a company. I think the congress which is the general assembly which is the nearest thing it has to if you want to set hold assembly.
