Fox’s Neo-Con Charity Slammed

Another week and another headache for the beleaguered Defence Secretary. Neo-Con head-bangers the Atlantic Bridge have been slammed by the Charity Commission for their close ties to the Tories. Set up by Fox in 2003, like the Smith Institute and Labour, they never really made any attempt to hide their political affiliations. Quite how they thought could get away with endorsing the Conservatives and maintain their neutral status beggars-belief.

The “charity” has been given a year to play by the rules or lose that all important status and the tax break it brings…

    It really does not matter which party it is, they all have their charitable slush funds & the CC is a useless “quango” that allows them to get away with it.

    “You have a year to comply” – imagine any other walk of life where blatant tax avoidance to channel funds to your own interests would be tolerated?

    One law for them one law for us – meet the new bosses, same as the old bosses.

    Gordon Brown, Corgi Registered but struck off for being a cunt says:

    Fook the fooking Atlantic Bridge, and then ram said bridge up your fooking fundament Fox, you sack of NeoCon shyte.

    We’ve had a fooking gutful of Tony Blair’s craven submission of Britain’s foreign policy and armed forces to the Washington warlords, for his economic gain.
    America’s relationship with Britain is akin to a dog’s relationship with a lamp-post, so enough for fooks sake.

    Happily however the one positive to arise from Blair’s shameful prostitution of Britain to the degenerate yank trash, is that never again will a British squaddie take the field of battle shoulder to shoulder with America’s barbarian hordes of trailer trash, slum dwellers and farm boys.

    Gove and Fox are both fookin rabid NeoCons, a black mark for a coalition I heartily approve of generally.

    Martin Day BBC political correspondent says:

    The Government has announced plans to scrap the UK Film Council – the body which supports the British movie industry – as part of a drive to cut costs.

    Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt wants to axe the organisation, whose remit also includes nurturing UK film talent at home and abroad, to ensure “greater value for money”.

    Film producer Tim Bevan, whose credits include Notting Hill (pictured), Atonement and Bridget Jones’s Diary, criticised today’s announcement, in his role as chair of the UK Film Council, as a “bad decision imposed without any consultation or evaluation”.

    It must be accepted that Dr Fox is essentially a piece of cock cheese. We are meant to be having a “strategic defence review”, which will result in our defence forces being butt fucked once again to pay for all the disabled Somali lesbians who contribute to our diverse society, and the daft twat is fucking around with yet another bogus fucking charity. Fuck.

    He wants the UK to spend tens of £billions bombing Iran slaughtering babies, just so he can get a few £million from the genocidal joooooooooooooooz for giving them pleasure.

    The charities commission was deliberately corrupted by New Labour. They passed a whole load of laws designed to privilege their own groups, and installed Dame Suzi Leather (sic) to stick it to the Tories, the Public Schools, the Churches, etc etc.

    Quite why the Coalition is tolerating this I don’t know. Just repeal that law and restore the old system of charities. It worked. The current one is simply a device to harass Tories.
