It seems the closest the Atlantic Bridge has ever come to educating the public is hosting the launch of a book by William Hague in New York.
Officially an education and research scheme, or ‘think tank,’ hosting events like this is essential if the Atlantic Bridge is to retain its charitable status both here in the UK and in the USA.
Yet even here, the charity sails close to the wind. In the US persons, ‘in a position to exercise substantial influence over the affairs of the organization,’ may not benefit from its activities. Let’s hope that William Hague’s position on the Atlantic Bridge advisory board doesn’t upset the US Inland Revenue Service (IRS), too much. Or maybe it was the British taxpayer who subsidised this one.
