I'm sure John's right about Gift aID.
And yep, too succinct. I got that bit but not the reason.

Indeed, and for now I remain a member.
This is subject to finding out precisely why the charity is voluntarily
throwing away money.

Doesn't Gift Aid depend on the recipient, not the payment processor?
If so, I would have thought that donating to WMUK, even with WMF acting
as the payment processor, would presumably be entitled to Gift Aid.
No it won't. Only donations direct to a Registered UK Charity can attract
Gift Aid. Under the arrangements just announced, only donations made via
WMUK's own site will be eligible for Gift Aid, and donations made off the
project banners won't be.
