Jim off NB Starcross has an interesting update on the BW position when it changes into a charity
The real interest is that the goverment are now saying the property portfolio will go to the charity. This was really the only way it was going to work. I did have my doubts as I thought the Government would take this and sell it off before passing what was left to the charity. Now we just need to ensure the salaries are more in line with the real world and maybe, maybe some progress can be made.
One thing I hope is they keep the name and ID - no costly consultants and sign changing that would be hundreds of thousands of pounds. Lets take the practical cheap approach (for now) the ID can be changed when the charity is up running and making a difference to the canals?
It was nearly headfirst by both of us!
