Tory MP Charlie Elphicke has a Westminster Hall debate at 11am this morning on the political independence of charities. A few years back Fraser Nelson warned how Britain’s charities had been “stuffed to the gunwales with Labour placemen” by Gordon Brown before he left office. The full list of Brown government advisers who have subverted the third sector is food for thought ahead of today’s debate:

Konrad Caulkett (No. 10) – Appeals Director, Theirworld

Matt Cavanagh (No. 10) – Did stint at IPPR after leaving No.10

Brendan Cox (No. 10) – Director of Advocacy and Policy, Save the Children

Dan Corry (No. 10) – Chief Executive, New Philanthropy Capital

Patrick Diamond (No. 10) – Vice-Chairman, Policy Network

Justin Forsyth (No. 10) – Chief Executive, Save the Children UK

Gavin Kelly (No. 10) – Chief Executive, Resolution Foundation

Baroness Nye (No. 10) – Burma Campaign UK / Young Women’s Trust

Nick Pearce (No. 10) – Director, IPPR

Lisa Perrin (No. 10) – Events Manager, IPPR

Lord Stevenson (No. 10) – Hypospadias / Foundation for Credit / CSS / BAT

Anthony Vigor (No. 10) – Former Fellow, IPPR

Robert Philpot (Cabinet Office) – Director, Progress

Francine Bates (Children and Schools) – Chief Executive, the Lullaby Trust
