Citizens Advice Bureau Tries to Keep “Perception of Neutrality”

How do left-wing charities stuffed full of Labour apparatchiks try to mask their political allegiances? Leaked emails from the Citizens Advice Bureau reveal former Miliband aide and Labour candidate Polly ‘parachute’ Billington has been moved from the front line so “she can focus on her personal political activities“, and so that the “perception of our political neutrality” is “maintained”.

Meanwhile, the charity has just hired the Resolution Foundation’s James Plunkett as its new head of campaigns. That would be the same James Plunkett who used to work for Gordon Brown and who has written a string of articles for the Guardian laying into the Tories and “the cuts”. Wonder how they will maintain his “perception of political neutrality”…
