OK.. this is interesting.

It has the limited liability you previously talked about, agreed. I've 
read the section.

But if it has legal personality, it is then a body corporate, and is no 
longer "unincorporated", surely?

I'd like you, please, to point me to the section in the statute that 
states these kind of associations have legal personality, and construe 
it for me, please, since I'm obvious being dim. (It's quite possible we 
have different understandings of the term "legal personality" here.)
