Ought Blunkett Have Told ‘Em About ORT?

Blunkett was paid a fat five-figure sum by British ORT. Which is the UK wing of World ORT, the largest Jewish non-governmental education and training organisation in the world. (That’s him pictured on the right, not sure who the girl is...) According to their website;

“ORT’s work by governments and agencies around the world is the fact that money raised by your national organisations is supplemented on a matching funding basis at a ratio of approximately 20:1. In other words, every £1 that we raise provides ORT with the leverage to raise another £19 from official and other sources.”

More influence peddling? Did Blunkett advise them how to apply to the government for matching funding?
