__Insider trading is illegal.__

Create the following rule:
__Die, wonko!__

Wonko may not trade on the Stock market. This rule takes precedence over rule 

Create the following rule:

A player may own no more than 15 shares of any corporation or player. This 
rule takes precedence over rule 946.

Give all points gained by this proposal passing to Mithrandir.
Destroy all stocks held by Wonko.
Transfer all BNS held by Wonko to the bank.
