... or even Mystic Meg, but here are my predictions.
1. Once charity status is gained, it will quickly become apparent that it is necessary to rid the dynamic new organisation of the mudguards-and-cotton-duck-saddlebags image, if it is to show how passionate it is about the mission statement. A new "eye-catching"name then, omitting "touring" and club" and for all I know, "cyclists" as well. A single logo, as well, I suspect.
2. Diversification away from concentrating on cycling.
3. A realisation that there are real synergies to be achieved by rationalisation in the sector (AKA a take over by another green charity.)
4. In the meantime, the Charity Commission's strictures will finally put paid to the "charity-as-a-no-brainer-tax-wheeze-to-rake-in-the-shekels" line.
5 Nothing to do with charities or cycling, but coinciding with this, will be drastic reorganisation of the way civil litigation is funded. All the spin about a compensation culture, personal injury claims putting up the cost of motoring etc., will make the various conditional fee arrangements much less attractive to law firms and all but the poorest litigants will have to show willing by putting up some of their own money before bringing a case.
A place to discuss the issues relating to the proposed change in the national CTC’s structure.

Makes sense to me. If someone is sure they have been wronged they should be risking some of their money if they are not poor. The wealthy should certainly be using their own cash rather than the no win no fee system with inflated success fees.
No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?
