Following our recent complaint about the National Trust’s failure to remember the word “everyone” when it comes to keeping its land free from trail hunting, we received this comment by S Keene:

They did the same thing voting over the Stonehenge A303 improvements. Members’ motion at the Trust’s 2017 AGM asked Trustees to reconsider their position. Despite some 22,000 postal votes in favour, the motion was lost after the Chairman’s c.6,000 proxy votes were added to those against the motion, rather than for it.”

Imagine if next month the National Trust’s members instructed it to reject the tunnel! Watch out for every trick in the book being employed to prevent that happening!
