    the construction of a new branch will not go ahead

    Does this mean that they will still reside at Via della Bufalotta s or are they in the process of selling the bethel and have the work transferred to Seltzer?

    The Italian bethel was "allocated" what, to where?

    Halfbanana, I was wondering what this meant too maybe LaFrancia means rescinded.

    Please keep in mind that English is not everyone's first language. Online translators don't work for idiomatic expressions. I figured allocated meant exactly that ,,, changed, etc.

    Thanks for the update from Italy, LaFrancia. The WTS is shutting down a lot of its operations, and it seems to be affecting all western countries.

    I had a talk with my JW relative who is secretly in touch. S/he said that in the last year or so, there have been more changes in the b'Org than there have been in 25 years. Agreed!

    Is the Tower crumbling? Indeed.

    This is very much like "1984." Winston Smith rewrites past newspaper articles, so that the historical record always supports the party line. Then Winston is expected to believe the same new story even though he was part of changing the past truth into a present lie.

    Here, members have already been forced to give up their congregation money for the sake of building projects. They are told all at once that they have given generously and the money isn't keeping up with the expansion and that building projects (expansion) will not take place in many instances, and that only areas where there is more donation money will get Kingdom Halls. So right there, almost literally in one breath, they are told... "There is a money problem, but there is no money problem, there is no expansion but there is expansion, and no matter what else you take from this- send more money and everything is fine....and forget that we already took all your previous money."

    Good assessment OTWO, and nice literary allusion!

    You know how some Fire or Police Departments give the "special" guy in town a hat and a badge? That's an accurate description of Temporary Special Pioneers.

    The world wide preaching work will no longer be paid for by the Borg.

    Grazie La Francia, allora questa e una buona notizia anche.

    And may the tower fall very soon!
