    As a newbie, far be it from me to criticise members of this forum, but as a Brit I feel it is my duty intervene in the naming of the chapter.

    Please DO NOT choose 'Heart of Empire'. It's possibly the worst name I have ever come across. It's so naff it's defies belief. I honestly think that even the Americans wouldn't choose it.

    If Barbara Cartland wrote a Star Wars novel, that's probably what she'd call it.

    "Heart of the Empire is a little Merchant Ivory" Really? I think that even they would vomit over their tea-cakes at hearing this particular name suggested.

    Try saying it without laughing. Go on, I bet you can't. Please tell me you're not serious.

    P.S. I vote for 'C'.

    Lightspeed you have every right to air your opinion. I agree with your feelings on the "Heart of the Empire" title.

    Ahem!

    You can change your vote or vote tactically, but please don't! We have a reputation to uphold, especially to the Americans! :p

    Put yer foot down CA. We shouldn't be allowed to re-vote! It would make a complete mockery of this whole thread.

    Ahem :)
