We have now examined the ‘corporate employee’ listing on the official FISA membership list and obviously there are a large number of names on the list that we recognise.
It remains unclear if the people on this list know why they are now members of FISA, we have made tentative enquiries and it may well be that they are as much in the dark as the rest of the FISA membership. To this end we will perhaps publish the names of some senior figures but we will not be publishing the names of ordinary employees in order to protect them as individuals.
In a brief calculation we have added the 281 recent ‘corporate employee’ members to the number who were ‘bussed in’ just before last years AGM in a similar exercise..
This ‘corporate employee’ category now makes up 43% of the current FISA membership. All with voting rights, all effectively under the control of large corporate companies in one way, shape or form.
This is a wake up call to anyone looking at their voting papers and thinking they can’t be bothered to vote.
For anybody that is unsure, the best thing to do is to take your proxy form, fill in your details, go to step 1. Appointment of Proxy, and write Donald Maclean in the box.
Make sure you sign and date the form and return it to Electoral Reform Services, 33 Clarendon Road, London N8ONW.
It is worth remembering that whether you vote by paper and post or online or by proxy that the vote is being held and overseen by the Electoral Reform Service who are completely independent and unbiased.
