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
