Well, he starts with "the voters want democratic transparency. here."
See "00:31 <Ganneff> ask your question in a normal way, like anyone else
does, and you get an answer." for that. :)

Yes, SPI helps us out of a time-critical thing, where some sponsors need
more time to get money out of them to us then we have to pay for the

SPI will get back every USD used for that.
