LibDems In Need: Donate Now

One of the few memories Guido has from the LibDem conference is the army of yellow lanyard-wearing charity muggers sending round the begging bowls before Nick Clegg’s speech. Clearly the pennies didn’t add up – the LibDems In Need have resorted to taking donations from Oxfam. Martin Horwood has this month disclosed a £1,015 donation from the children’s charity for foreign travel.

And which poverty-stricken third-world country did he visit to help needy young people? Horwood used the charity cash to fly to New York, stay in a hotel and pay for his meals as part of a delegation to lobby the UN on the arms trade. Just what the generous kind-hearted souls who donate to Oxfam want their money going towards…

    the money is needed to bribe 3rd world crooks to buy british arms so that those making them can make charitable donations – and feel good about it

    Oxfam is a con in the guise of a charity. Look at the accounts to see what the top bods get i.e. charity begins in the boardroom.

    Three points of information for readers:

    a) The car park at Oxfam is big, spacious and every day rammed bumper to bumper with BMWs and 4x4s. Nothing’s too good for the eco-warriors.
    b) Which well meaning super charity spent your hard earned donations supplying last year’s student protestors with green hard hats? Hard hats? At a protest? What were they thinking? Incitement? Surely not…
    c) The food in the Oxfam canteen is heavily subsidised*. Work THAT one out you friends of the poor…

    * by the UK taxpayer.

    Ironic considering he makes much in Cheltenham where he is MP of supporting local defence industries in his patch. But no surpirse there, but also how did he decalre his interest before in the coomons when he mentioned them 21 times in debate. Perhaps that the way to get a freebie.

    Handycock Immigrant Trafficker says:

    I and my fellow Libdems in Portsmouth are the 2nd or 3rd biggest donors to the Party. The money comes from my boys who launder their money through building blocks of flats in the city for asylum seekers (not allowed to be housed in public housing), that I have arranged to come in with the Border Agency.

    http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/audit_trail_of_political_donatio#incoming-137471

    The money comes in from my grateful boys who I have fixed planning permissions up for and I share it around my fellow LibDems to donate. Those who donate the most, including me, slightly change their names on the declarations to the Electoral Commission, so no fiddle is suspected and everyone is happy. Boaz.

    That is it – I will NEVER EVER give money to Oxfam again. There are more deserving charities, who do not waste our money and do not promote anti-Britain agendas. Like Cancer trust.

    A) Most of those BMW’s and 4×4 don’t belong to Oxfam staff, other people non-Oxfam related seem to think its ok to park here. If you have any helpful ideas of how to stop them, that would be great

    b) It’s not just students that support our campaigns, in 2011 1 million people supported our campaigns and we are very successful at making a difference. Feel free to have a look at our website and see how you could get involved and make a difference

    c) I wish the canteen was heavily subsidised, I’m not sure where you got your facts from for that., however the food in the Oxfam canteen is great, I love the fully cooked breakfast on the Friday.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
