WATCH: Daily Politics on Third Sector Mafia Stitch-Up

Two weeks ago Guido revealed how former Labour apparatchiks from the taxpayer-subsidised charity mafia were trying to pull of a concerted media hit against Tory MP Conor Burns. The Daily Politics today took a look at the close links between Labour rhetoric and that of some sections of the third sector:

Burns is still blocking the path of the outrage bus:

“We have government giving unrestricted grants to charities, and then those charities using that money to lobby the government to change policy. That is, I think, an abuse of taxpayers’ money and one that should come to an end. As I say, I’ve got no issues with charities campaigning, that’s part of their role. But I think the person that supports their local Oxfam shop or supports Save the Children gives money on the assumption that that’s going to alleviate poverty in some of the poorest parts of the world, not that it’s going on political campaigns in the United Kingdom.

If you look at the list of some of the so-called charity leaders who attacked me in the Times newspaper recently, a good number of them had stood for the Labour Party in general elections, a number of them had advised Tony Blair and Gordon Brown in senior positions in Number 10 and in other government departments. They are then coming into these charities and using their position to campaign against what were their political opponents.”

Oxfam has already been reported to the Charity Commission, who could do worse than looking at some of the other patently politically partisan charities peddling Labour spin…

    That is the tax free perversion of the communitarian political economy.

    Really the government money should be going to the corporate sector and partly then feedback is completed by corporates lobbying government.

    Hmm…

    Vote UKIP :-D

    Here is my attitude to ‘charity’ .
    I would not willingly contribute the thousandth part of a counterfeit farthing to Africa.
    The more you ‘help’ the worse it gets.
    I believe at least half of the ‘ring-fenced aid’ is syphoned off by business and corrupt politicians before it even leaves Britain.
    Any that gets there is syphoned off by despots.
    The only wee kiddiewinkies who get a mouthful do so only at a photo opportunity for a POXFAM advert.

    Depressed visitor from overseas who once thought Britain really was 'great' - but no longer says:

    How on earth do the CEOs and other senior officers of these organisations justify their six-figure salaries? Surely average wage plus say 10% should suffice for them to struggle by on? Charities should only be funded by voluntary donations and the govt should fuck off out of their lives and stop secretly giving them other people’s money. If they can’t make enough in voluntary donations, they are obviously totally useless and should be closed.

    Your country really is becoming one of the most depraved and corrupt cess pits of the world, but most of you are too close to the woods to see the trees.

    Now there's a thought says:

    High time some action was taken on this state of affairs.

    Presumably all heads of Qangos are on some sort of Govt contract since it is the govt that funds them. It should not be too difficult then when their contracts expire to simply write a note thanking them for their services and informing them that their contracts are not being renewed. {Cue crocodile tears from lefty *anchors}. Maybe thereafter some measure of impartiality and balance can be instilled at the top of these organisations – but far better if the bloody wastes of money were just shut down once and for all and responsibility for whatever it is they have been responsible for returns to where it should be – with the appropriate Minister.

    We have taxpayer funded so-called charities like Stonewall who lobby and campaign to promote homosexuality, Brake who lobby and campaign to reduce speed limits to 20 mph, Alcohol Concern who lobby and campaign to stop you drinking, ASH who lobby and campaign to stop you smoking and 26000 other taxpayer funded so-called charities who don’t do any real charitable work at all. Many of these have CEOs on salaries of £60k and more. Meanwhile, real charities doing real charitable work such as the Lifeboat Institute and Air Ambulance don’t get a penny.

    The whole thing needs complete reform.

    Charities should not receive any taxpayer funding directly or indirectly.
    Charities should rely on volunteer staff only, including their Directors.
    Charities should not engage in lobbying or campaigning.

    I know lots of people who no longer donate to the
    big charities like Oxfam,Red Cross etc because of
    executive pay,political electioneering or the fact that
    they fly round the world first class.

    to donate because their boss was paid over £125,000.

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.”
