We do now seem to be getting somewhere. Openness and thorough accounting are what is required, not reassuring words. I'm not saying that anyone has their hand in the till, but I was getting concerned at the proportion of bland assurances and frankly misinformation to hard facts. Pedro1 has an ascerbic way of expressing himself, but fundamentally he has expressed my concerns. Amanda (as always) has been a voice of calm reason. What I want to see is a straightforward list of donations coming to a total, a list of expenditures coming to a total, and a reliable statement as to where the difference is located and under whose control. As I said, basic accounting (is my accountancy training showing?).
I'm not fundamentally concerned and will probably reinstate my gift. But I do want a lot more clarity introduced as a matter of standard practice first.
It seems that the original thread's been unlocked. Good move that, though now we'll have to scan two threads. Any chance of this one being merged into the other one, Marty? I don't think this matter is ready to lie down and go to sleep just yet.
