My guess is if someone had a go, the it's-nothing-to-do-with-me approach wouldn't have helped on 7/7.

My non-amateur G/GI/GM friends here in VR understand this & aren't at all impressed when I explain to them what they are doing to amateur radio - but then again they all left UK long ago. They're also in their late-30s to early-50s - a bit chalk 'n cheese compared to the demographic from your national society I've seen firsthand seemingly more interested in protecting that OTHR than standing up for its members & the hobby as a whole.
We have the same problem in my country (it also uses an electromagnetic weapon of mass destruction on the world of amateur radio) & I find it funny that those supposedly representing the interests of our amateurs also seem to think the country's defence needs "support" like this - as if great countries like China or the UK (or its mates) can't do whatever they feel they need to do without using amateur allocations to do so.
Fingers crossed recent events with your national society will change this... at least now I know there's one G who might not agree with what it has done - whether it's about its founding date, that LUSO tower, "protecting" ZC4RADAR or somebody's expenses. Perhaps I'm wrong, but there's a common denominator of governance here that hopefully can be resolved so in future what the company does is what its members really want. With an M&A that probably leaves everything up to the sole discretion of its officers, it might behoove everyone to start there. I say that based on the experience of watching the VR national society take the power from the members & where that can lead to.
