    Avada Kedavra. Very similar poster to you IMO; has all the tools to take over what you provide.

    Well I think the convention is that you should not only appoint your successor but you should take that person under your wing during a transition period and coach and mentor them.

    There are a number of up and coming young Australian posters who are diamonds in the rough.

    So who are you going to name?

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I've always thought you have had a few drinks before your best anti-England rants. No need to worry about your back. As long as you stay on the sauce then you retain the title.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    Which Australian captain do you most identify with? This will help make the decision on your successor.

    The answer to this is definitely Border I reckon. Burgey would turn for Border.

    I'm not fat and I don't have a voice for TV so Tubby Taylor comparisons would be far fetched, I'm also a **** poster so look elsewhere.
    There are two colours in my head

    You also have to be cantankerous when talking about Aussie politics.

    Could have been GIMH, but he's recently been caught up in a text messaging scandal, whereby he was found to have been sending messages to members of a rival forum saying how **** some of his CW teammates (Jono) are.
