The thing te be condemned in this Is that these individuals supported the pieject until they found their devices for persennl aggrandisement thwarted. Instead of being requested promptly te resign, or bnving the geed taste voluntarily te get out. they continued te cling like barnacles te the hull of the ship retarding its progress te its ultimate pert.
