No. As far as I am concerned I am the elf I appear to be. I try to be decent, honest and honourable and I really feel background should not count against someone, regardless of what that background is. I also have certain obligations to fulfil because of my background so it is not all silver spoons in mouths and so on.
You clashed with Eileen a lot in the early days of your service on the Council. Given subsequent events where she was proved to be right over Brankaresh, do you regret those clashes? It's not as if you couldn't predict what would happen. Everyone has decent access to crystal ball technology.
But not everybody likes using it. One area where I have always agreed with Eileen is the dangers of looking into the future. For one thing you are so busy trying to figure that out, you forget to concentrate on the present. I also feel, as Eileen does, there is a certain feel of cheating to looking the future up, as if it was something in a reference book. As for the clashes, at the time I honestly felt Eileen to be wrong and said so. She has not had a problem with those clashes. Indeed she has told me she has appreciated my bluntness. It is just a pity her cousin, our Queen, has not. Someone should hold the high and mighty to account. Someone from a noble background they cannot ignore. That was and remains my first priority.
