Reply Link Anonymous 24 October 2008 at 12:04 “democracy in action”? Claims of democracy in action are laughable. The Society didn’t actually sent notice of its AGM / SGM to members, as it always used to do (instead, it simply put it on its web site), so the membership had no idea that the change was being proposed. If it hadn’t been for the 20 members who insisted on the postal vote, the membership would not have had any say in this at all. Now the Membership Board of the Society, chaired by Mr Martin, has asked for a report from Society staff on why postal votes can be called by as few as 20 members. Democracy, that’s why!
