alanv: Andrew Schofield, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses in Britain, states: “For almost 60 years, our administrative operations for Britain have been located in London."
FYI the quote is here: https://www.jw.org/en/news/releases/by-region/united-kingdom/branch-office-breeam-rating-sustainable-design/
Mr Schofield, even forgetting about the 'spin of increased demand', it appears you can't even get basic FACTS correct. And you should have 'studied' this less than a year ago!
Neither, in this instance (on the WT's own website), can you make the excuse that you where 'mis-quoted' or quoted 'out-of-context'.
Actually: "For almost 117 years, our administrative operations for Britain have been located in London."
God's Kingdom Rules! Chapter 2, page 29

1900: First branch office established in London, England
Oh. You should have 'studied' the above in the mid-week meeting in October 2016.
Here's a list to help you:
1900: Gipsy Lane (now known as Green Street), Forest Gate, London (8 miles from Charing Cross, the 'center of London')
1903: Eversholt Street, Euston, London (1.5 miles to Charing Cross)
1911: Craven Terrace, Lancaster Gate, London (2.5 miles to Charing Cross)
1959: The Ridgeway, Mill Hill, London (9 miles to Charing Cross)
2019: Temple Farm, Chelmsford, Essex (outside London and 31 miles from Charing Cross)
If you can't even get basic info right - why should we believe the rest of what you say?
And thanks to alanv for picking this up
