To true Wingit!
I have tried to send A.W a letter which clearly shows an alternative analysis of the Foster poll...but for some unexplicable reason, They are being returned, this has never occured before, I hope my hard copy doesn't mysteriously vapourize. Here it is for any body who is interested.
would you be as kind as to print this short, simple but accurate analysis of the foster poll?
Why not look at these poll figures in a more fair and reasonable manner, i.e.
1250 clubs (a minimum of 75,000 members) did not vote in support of the Foster report, this represents 85% of eligible voters!
As a whole (not in 4 parts) vote, it would have been a draw!
But still only with 30% of all possible votes
The Scottish and Welsh votes “were not required” or identified in the results! Why were they used?
No figure was democratically agreed on for victory, prior to the vote! Therefore 15% can never equate to a democratic victory!
To attempt pushing forwards irregardless of opinion and without redressing these serious errors is the behavior of those, who in my opinion are unworthy of our costly but freely given voluntary time and expertise!
there is more than enough time to start the whole process again, but this time with a properly agreed agenda, fully independent consultation, proper selection of leadership which mainly represents the clubs, transparency, accountability, string free funding and no political interference....full club involvement and acknowledgement of our ownership of our sport.
I have to wonder why this was not done in the first instance
If such letters do not get printed then my subscription will be cancelled after 15 years of loyal readership, it seems that A.W is not people orientated any more so my £2.50 will go towards anybody wishing to start up an independent British athletic association which is free from politics,
and who operates an effective athletics news letter and forum!
