Brown Office Gives Just 1 in 4 Pounds Raised to Charity
UPDATE 21 March 2014: The above video was removed from the BBC iPlayer archive at Gordon Brown’s insistence. This is a copy hosted on our own offshore server rather than any third party provider.
Since 2010 Gordon Brown has submitted more Press Complaints Commission complaints than he has delivered speeches in the House, meaning you won’t read about the financial affairs of the Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown in the papers. So Guido was pleased to have the opportunity to share the story with a wider audience on the Daily Politics this lunchtime.
- Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown has £10,000-a-week expenses
- Not a registered charity, two thirds of funds raised spent on expenses
- Less than £1 million given to charity out of over £3 million raised
- Vanity project lets Gordon and Sarah enjoy jet-set premier life-style of first class flights and five star hotels
Brillo asked the pertinent question of Gordon: “Mentally, is he out of it?”
