Do you have any evidence that the two things are in any way related, or is it just another case that you don't like the charity status so attribute everything else you don't like to it?
I think it's deeply disrespectful to the trustees, those I've met share the same interests and aims as I do as a member. I'm more involved at a local level than national, that's where the touring stuff happens, as far as I'm aware that's where the vast majority has always happened. The relationship between MG's and NO could be better, my experience is that in some ways it is better than it was a decade ago and in no respect is it worse.
For the record - I voted against the merger, I saw no reason for there not to be two independent groups working together. But I long got over it and accept we are where we are.
