If I understand you correctly you're making the assumption that the only source of cash/bank account for the 4709 group is the ring fenced fund in the GWS books which contains donations via GWS charitable status. Two weeks ago I'd have thought exactly the same. Now I'm not sure that need be the case. Is there any reason why the individuals that comprise the 4709 group should not have other funds available to them, personal donations, private loans, money that hasn't come through the charitable donation route? Applying Occams razor, is it more likely that the GWS management are lying about being blindsided and are thoroughly implicated in this PR disaster, or that they are telling the truth, and the 4709 folk have gone about this privately and without involving GWS related funds? I don't think any of the 4709 group statements are incompatible with the latter scenario.
