Time's nearly up for the PBCC-with still no sign whatsoever of genuine contrition from GAC, BGR or BKH, let alone BDH!
Section 92 page 21 of The Charity Commisions decision document;
92. The Commission considered that there is evidence to support the view that there are elements of detriment and harm which are in real danger of outweighing public benefit, although given as noted above that the evidence was untested by cross examination, it could not come to a concluded view of its extent or whether it indeed outweighed public benefit in the first sense. The most serious detriment and harm related, in the Commission’s view, to the allegations of the treatment of ex-Brethren and to the Disciplinary Practices. The Commission asked that the PBCC address these issues, which they were willing to do. After discussion with the Commission, the PBCC acknowledged that its doctrines and practices should be explicit and integral to its trusts and could address the allegations made against it.
