Third Sector Mafia Tantrum
Labour’s Charity Allies Attack Tory MP 


Back in 2012 Fraser Nelson warned that Brown was putting his people into the Charity third-sector. Sure enough the usual suspects from the taxpayer-subsidised charity mafia will tomorrow try to pull off one of their coordinated outrage media hits. They will have a pop at Tory MP Conor Burns for having the cheek to suggest that charities like Oxfam, who take a significant chunk of public money for their international efforts, should butt out of domestic politics. The well-heeled public affairs team at Friends of the Earth have got a collection of Labour sleepers to sign a letter to the Times which will be published on Monday morning. They will claim that they are all very ‘concerned’ that attempts are being made to ‘stifle charities’. They deliberately miss the point that this is ‘concern’ about the government awarding money to organisations that then use that cash to lobby the very same government. 

Guido was particularly amused when  he had a little look at the signatories to Monday’s letter. Just how independent is Joe Irvin from the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action? Well he used to be a Special Adviser to John Prescott and a member of the Number 10 policy unit under Labour…

Kate Allen of Amnesty International? Well she was sleeping with Ken Livingstone for long enough…

How about Alexandra Runswick from Unlock Democracy? Proud Labour member. 

Surely Tony Dykes, from those UK-based experts Action for Southern Africa, is alright?  Nope, the former Leader of Camden Council. (Labour).

Guido feels he is being a bit unfair labelling all these concerned do-gooders as Labour supporters. At least Jon Nott, the General Secretary of the Woodcraft Folk, is a Green. The same cannot be said of Martin Drewry  from Health Poverty Action who is another proud Labour supporter.

Leaked emails reveal that the now much maligned Oxfam have had a hand in making this letter happen. Their Policy and Communications Manager, Richard Pyle, has been encouraging old friends, colleagues and fellow travellers to sign up. Let’s have a peek at some of his ‘likes’ and interests on Facebook, shall we?

- Wes Streeting for Ilford North (Labour PPC)
- Derek4Europe (Derek Munn a Labour MEP candidate for Scotland)
- Pam Duncan (who ran for Labour selection in wait for it…Falkirk)
- Kirsty4Europe (Kirsty O’Brien, a Labour MEP candidate for Scotland)
- LGBT Labour
- Luke Pollard (Labour PPC in South West Devon in 2010)
- David Miliband
- Peter Mandelson
- Tony Blair

And, lest there be any doubt:

- I’m supporting Labour at the General Election

You have to wonder how switched on Oxfam’s Policy Manager really is when he ‘declares war on unemployment’ in the same week that employment reaches a record high. It’s worth noting who is really driving this hysterical outrage bus. Hint: it’s party political.

They are duplicitous c*nts who actually probably don’t give a toss about the people and causes they are meant to help. Just using them as vehicles to peddle their pernicious propaganda and to get paid for doing it. “I do charity work” – yeah course you do! I bet they’ve never done anything for free in their lives. Give up some of your free time and go and wipe an old person’s bottom in a care home or feed them a meal cos they can’t feed themselves. That’s real charity work! F*ck the lot of you “charity” types! There should be a purge of all the malignant sh*t from public life in this country.

    Climate sceptics are very familiar with this extensive network of supposedly independent groups which are in fact closely related, share a largely common membership (where they actually have one, a number of them basically consist of one person with a computer churning out press releases e.g. Transform Scotland or whatever he’s calling it this week) and swap key personnel e.g. Richard Dixon went seamlessly from WWF to FOE.

    Their objective is to appear to have a larger voice and collect more public money than their numbers justify.

    The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few, where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe, and where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.

    “Charities exist to tackle social evils”

    * 2009 – Ministry of Education in Kenya – $1.3m (£850,000) to buy learning materials went missing. Visa bans issued against 20 Kenyan officials.
    * 2010 – Nigeria could not trace £165,000 of DfID funding for training teachers which has disappeared
    * 2010 – Government refused to disclose the names of charities and developing countries found to have fraudulently obtained money donated on behalf of UK taxpayers. That was Labour BTW!
    * 2011 – The average salary of the chief executives of the UK’s top-100 charities was £166,048.
    * 2013 – £480,000 worth of “humanitarian materials and supplies” was written off following repeated “confiscations” by al-Shabaab
    * 2013 – Comic Relief allegedly invested £150m of funds it had raised for up to eight years including into tobacco firms and an arms company

    So Boris thinks that we should have allowed Saddam to renege on on the armistice terms he got after Gulf War (occasioned by the invasion of a fellow UN member state)? Well, forget the Churchill comparisons then.

    You can criticise the execution of the war, particularly the occupation. But it was a just war.

    You can whinge all you like – the truth is that the greatest advance in the health and wellbeing of poor people took place as a direct result of state action begun in World War 2 under Churchill and carried through by the Labour Government 1945-51, and was nothing to do with charity.

    Charity is a very inefficient way of improving people’s lot and is often just an exercise in social networking.

    In the 1930s the origins of the Woodcraft folk were the Kibbo Kraft movement. They were very close to fascism (as was the German Wandervogel of the time). They marched in parades wearing their “Greenshirts”. The organisation split, many joined the Moselyites, some formed the Woodcraft Folk and a small rump of Kibbo Krafters hovered around until the 1950s.

    Jack Ketch. says:

    The great charities of our time, those founded by those “do-gooder” Victorians were run largely by people who had independent means or a benefactor. Many top CEOs of public companies who have made a pile and expected to retire at 60 might earn their knighthoods by spending a couple of years as head of a major charity–not a paid sinecure on the board, but actually run the show for expenses only. It is obscene that the head of a charity should be paid the equivalent salary of a CEO of a medium-sized corporation, but then, its all about the money, innit?

    The only reason I had not responded to Jimmy’s last question to me was that I had gone to bed.

    The fact that he came back so many times to those who, so kindly and ably filled my place, shows that he felt he was on dodgy ground here.

    There were no answers from him of course. Only questions. Those questions of ours, which we asked and which he ignored, leave huge signposts to the fundamental inadequacy of his position.

    His brain has no heart, and his heart has no brain. That’s why when he speaks his mind, he appear heartless and when he does what’s in his heart he appears thoughtless.

    In ModernSpeak, he would surely make an excellent Labour politician…

    Very sensible. Pity Cameron and Osborne never read Christmas Eve.

    June 1972, the US EPA, Environmental Protection Agency, banned DDT as carcinogenic.
    It wasn’t. It was an effective anti-malarial agent, out of patent & cheap.

    Deaths from malaria were down to about 50,000 pa. Malaria was almost a minor illness before the ban.

    After the ban, deaths shot to about 2 million pa.
    Since 1972, about 66 million people have died unnecessarily in the Third World, mostly children.

    That’s more than Hitler killed, more than Stalin, more than Mao.

    Read Michael Crichton’s best seller “State of Fear”
    Read Wildavsky, Aaron : “But is it True? A Citizen’s Guide to Environmental Health and Safety Issues.” Cambridge : Harvard University Press (1995?)
    25 pages on DDT, also sections on acid rain, asbestos, the ozone hole, global warming & more.

    When/If sanity returns, the ban on DDT will come to be seen as the greatest tragedy of the 20th Century.

    We live in OrwellWorld, & the EPA should be renamed the HSA : The Human Slaughter Agency

    The icing on this genocide cake?

    DDT was never actually banned.

    The cherry on top of that icing?

    Foreign rulers, many dictators, were told: “You order DDT, you get no more foreign aid” Rulers were bribed to be complicit in the deaths of their own people.

    Foreign aid is for genocide.

    In Augustinian terms, it was a just war. It was executed with considerable skill and panache in military terms.

    The problems then came afterwards with the unjust peace. The total dismantling of the entire security services was too great a shock to the system for it to be able to hold together.

    It illustrated that only war was planned for. The attitude was along the lines of: Let’s get there and then decide what to do.

    The all too predictable result: An even bigger disaster than before war started.

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.”
