I worry this sort of thing's happening on a greater scale than we realise. There must be plenty of smaller organisations without the visibility of the National Trust where these people are trying to force their way in.
The National Trust, an anomaly of amoral language in itself, are one of the biggest enablers of Britain’s archaic land, privacy and access laws. Worked alongside their staff before life change and they were a significant contributing factor. The levels of ingratiating bs are Jedi, encouraging a priest class who wear crumpled, blue-faience linen jackets, shoes highly polished or scuffed to fuck bohemian wannabe
Trolling such an organisation, inside or out, still suggests NT had it coming for decades. One of the least diverse, pearl-clutching cysts these islands has produced, milquetoast ejuts with PhD’s in Country Piles and museum studies, creative with trousers and cardigans
