Yes, no doubt about it.

Probably. Details need to be decided on a case by case basis, but I
think part of WMUK's role is to represent the UK community. That
includes speaking for the community (although not the WMF, of course)
in these kind of matters. I think WMUK would say the same kind of
things as David did, just with a more official looking caption on the
Wikimedia UK mailing list
