I'm afraid as politicians around the world discover on a daily basis, it doesn't work that way. Particularly on political matters such as this, you do speak as a Steering Council member and PSF board member unless you very explicitly say otherwise, and even then your comments will reflect on both organisations. This is the sort of behaviour that gets local politicians suspended from their parties.

Perhaps you should re-read what you wrote. "Unfriendly" is an extremely polite term for the tone of it, and I for one felt threatened.
