And the first of our comments about the Reform Group concerns as laid out in their 1000 word statement.

Last year’s AGM

The Reform Group say “Last year’s AGM saw 160 members walk out in protest about the Chairman’s conduct of the meeting.” Well, it is true that most of the attendees walked out. We accept the 160 attendees were
clearly not happy and it was their right to leave the meeting at any time. We are not convinced the action was indicative of wider support amongst the membership. Perhaps this EGM will prove more conclusive.

The Reform Group ask if it was fair that the candidates “favoured by the Trustees were given an advantage through a WSRA mailshot not offered to other candidates.” We agree with the Reform Group – it was most definitely not fair.
