Phoenix and the Raw Deal

One sad thing lacking in this debate about the Phoenix gold deal is some questioning of the deal itself. I love the way that Phoenix crows about how 50/50 is a 'generous' deal for the land holders. Would not a generous deal be 90/10 in favour of the land holders? Mr Alp has proposed in the past that goverments should only impose a 1% income tax, yet he is quite happy to promote a 50% tax (in this case) as fair.

Would Mr Alp also disclose where it was that he carried out his 'successful' mercenary mission, oh, as well as his 'unsuccessful' mercenary mission??
