Charities Minister Warns Third Sector to Stay Out of Politics

A welcome move from the new charities minister Brooks Newmark, who has this afternoon launched a stinging attack on partisan charity sock-puppets:

“We really want to try and keep charities and voluntary groups out of the realms of politics. 99.9 per cent do exactly that. When they stray into the realm of politics that is not what they are about and that is not why people give them money. The important thing charities should be doing is sticking to their knitting and doing the best they can to promote their agenda, which should be about helping others.”

Predictably a minister daring to suggest anyone in the third sector might possibly do anything wrong has gone down like a cup of cold sick among charities themselves. Newmark is however making an important point and speaks from experience too, having himself set up his own charity in Rwanda. Guido has written previously on how sections of the third sector are stuffed full of Labour acolytes, spin for Labour and even write policy for political parties. Good to see the new charities minister is on board with the campaign to get charities out of politics…

    How can an organization be a charity and politically independent when it receives more than half of its funding from the Govt? Surely its then unelected govt branch – ie Quango?

    Talking of charity – Blair has been awarded Philanthropist of they year by GQ – I have now seen everything. These priveliged classes operate in a parallel universe. Britain voted for this monster 3 times – he’s about as moral a leader as Nicolai Ceaucescu.

    Excellent and timely warning. There was a highly political letter to national newspapers a couple of days ago saying that environment and conservation have developed seven goals for the next British Government, with climate change right up there at the top. Signed by the CEOs of CPRE, RSPB, Greenpeace UK, National Trust, The Wildlife Trusts, Green Alliance, Friends of the Earth, Campaign for Better Transport, WWFUK and Institute for European Environment Policy. These in particular should be warned to cease being charities or stop making overtly political statements.

    (1) Top charities spend 60% of cash raised on private firm which hounds people to donate (Daily Mirror, Aug 31, 2014):

    “GoGen is paid millions by bodies such as Oxfam, the British Red Cross and Save the Children to contact people in a bid to get them on board and donate”.

    (2)Warning Over £100,000 Charity Executive Wages (Sky News, Tuesday 06 August 2013): “There are fears six figure salaries for staff at 30 UK charities could discourage people from continuing to make donations”.

    “Some 30 people working at the 14 leading UK charities that make up the 50-year old Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) are paid more than £100,000 a year, according to new figures.”

    “A Daily Telegraph investigation into charity industry salaries showed British Red Cross CEO Sir Nick Young earns £184,000 a year.”

    “James Forsyth, chief executive of Save the Children, earns £163,000, while the charity’s chief operating officer Anabel Hoult earns £168,653.”

    The global charity industry as a whole stinks anyway. So much self interest.

    The ones that are run by political placepersons and run overt agendas to suit are the very worst and some are beyond redemption: they have to go.

    The Charity Commission is being turned around now but for too long had, yes, a political agenda as well as being generally useless.

    Never will give anything to any of the main stream charities as they have all been infiltrated by politically motivated Left wingers and gravy train merchants, and in any case they are not in my opinion charities when they are being funded in large part by central government (why?).

    originally many charities were run by individuals at the end of their careers who had already had successful careers in other areas. Since then the rise of professional charity ceo’s has led to a massive rise in salaries on the basis that they need to be more professional. they are now becoming more srill to get more funds and a larger share of the charity pie rather than just doing what they were set up to do.

    Agreed. No charity should receve grants from central or local government for any kind of lobbying, policy work, ‘research’ or raising ‘awareness’ exercise.

    If the government wants something like that done, they should do it themselves and make sure thy are fully accountable for what they do.

    They should not pay people to lobby them to change the law, pretending to have bowed to a public opinion which they have manufactured themselves while ignoring the views of the real public or other opinions. There should be an end to the fake ‘consultations’ in which only the usual suspects ever take part.

    This Brooks No -mark fellah should also tell charities to cut down on their gigantic salary packages and bloated admin costs .

    Get them to post online 6 month reports of the percentage of gross income taken by bureaucracy /operatiobs /admin versus the amount actually reaching the intended.

    Example: stop sending futile thsnk you ketters which cost over £5 each to type and post . Either do not do this at all or do it via SHORT stock emails.

    also don t send individual begging ketters — take out full psge ads on freesheets which majority still read or go online !!

    That s why I always walk into a charity shop and donate in cash anonymously . They are duty bound to give you a till receipt so no danger money being snaffled by volunteer . And they can t send you thznk you ketters/future begging missives !!

    Also ban CHUGGERS — they re offensive , futile and serve only to aggravate and alienate .

    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, instead they spend their time lobbying and campaigning. 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 whatsoever, either directly or indirectly.
    Charities should rely on volunteer staff only, including their Directors.

    They have being political in housing policy. They have converted many leisure berths to housing berths. Where in this country can existing leisure facilities be converted to housing. This is a direct political policy on housing numbers.

    They therefore raise the revenue from berths. Once someone can live on a boat then the berth costs rise beyond normal leisure budgets.

    The result is a major decrease in the movement of boats and therefore any activity on the canals is rarely observed. This depopulation of the canal sides has converted the canal system into the most lawless places in the country. It is a policy of minority cleansing.

    The canals should be populated on every stretch by people that care. They remove all those that care about the failing state of this national asset.

    Fair comment but why has it taken until the final, dying months of the government to even consider this.

    Why does Dave still appoint politicos to Quangos and charities.

    Why does HMT finance leftist charities.

    “We really want to try and keep charities and voluntary groups out of the realms of politics.”

    So minister talks tough on charities. But that same minister does not say what he is GOING to do or, better still, is DOING to stop the political involvement.

    So do something then, don’t just talk about it.

    Bah, what’s the use, we’ve been here so many times: Quangos, imigrants, councils, dole cheats, energy prices, the EU . . the list is endless.

    As always action speaks louder than words.

    If you have to use a kettle to boil a given quantity of water then restricting the power of the kettle just makes it take longer to boil since the same amount of energy is required.

    Hello Subjects. Dame Tessa here. You know – the posh lady who makes the Queen sound common. Charity is a subject close to my heart. Please give generously to the new Londonwide appeal “Help An Old Bag Become London Mayor”. It is frightfully unfair that posh self important ladies who have done so much to help the remortgaging industry, is cast aside when she becomes too frail to stoop down to kiss the leaders arse. Her old friends wants to make sure she has a profitiable doteage till she hands over to the z-list tranny in 2020, but we can never have enough of the folding stuff so please send all you can afford to the appeal office, address your donation to David Mills, Treasurer, at Miranda House Mincing Lane.

    Quite right, in fact very far right, too. Since it is government’s task to push policies which place the population in peril, (selective law enforcement/food banks/war wounded, etcetera, etcetera), and the role of charities to pick up the pieces…No one wants interfering busy bodies coming in, changing things, and thus doing themselves out of a job.

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.”
