The FT’s Beth Rigby makes an interesting point and it would only be natural, I suppose, if the affair caused some of the donors to think twice about making a gift to the blue team. Did the person they were speaking to have the authority to make promises?
In any case giving should be for pleasure – not something you get a lot of grief over.
