The charity sector— a “rotten borough”
Sadly, the charity sector has, over decades, developed into a “rotten borough”. There have been so many scandals. Oxfam alone has had many. Legal and political scandals around “charitable status”; sex scandals; money-related scandals. Why?
I believe that, looking at the larger charities, the basic problem is one of focus, going back to those recruited.
There was always a “campaigning” aspect to many of these charities, inasmuch as many of them have always regarded it as part of their remit to campaign for changes in the law, or changes in public behaviour. Examples would include the Salvation Army, and the League Against Cruel Sports, to name but two.
There is inevitably a grey area between such “political” or socio-political campaigning, and outright politicking. This came to a head in the 1980s when it emerged that Oxfam was spending huge amounts of money (money mainly donated by well-meaning members of the public) not only on direct alleviation of poverty in Africa (etc), and not even on effective but indirect poverty-alleviation (eg supporting schools in Africa), but on political propaganda such as anti-apartheid stuff (the false narrative being that poverty in Africa as a whole was somehow caused by apartheid in South Africa, despite the fact that the Africans in South Africa were often better off than Africans in other African states).
In fact, the now nearly 30 years of (notional) black African rule in South Africa have proven that apartheid was not the only or even main factor holding back 99.9% of South African blacks. The new South Africa has quite as much inequality of capital and income as the old South Africa, together with rocketing crime and corruption. All that and virtue-signalling too!
In the UK charity/NGO sector, there have been all the scandals around money and sex, such as at Save The Children, where the head of the organization was getting about £400,000 a year, and where his cronies at the top were getting £200,000 or more, one such crony being the sex-pest Brendan Cox, the then husband of Labour Party MP Jo Cox (who was assassinated in 2016).
The roots of these problems go back to the kind of people recruited. Typical of our age: virtue-signalling “woke” hypocrites, but who are also very interested in money.
There is, also, a persistent problem with many charity staff, at the higher (careerist) levels, being anti-white, meaning anti-European race and culture.
The Maya Forstater case https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_Forstater_v_Centre_for_Global_Development
I have blogged, about the general questions raised, once or twice in the past: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/
He was right. We are pretty much there now…
In the Maya Forstater appeal: “The panel said only views akin to Nazism or totalitarianism were unworthy of protections for rights of freedom of expression and thought.” [The Guardian]. https://www.theguardian.com/law/2021/jun/10/gender-critical-views-protected-belief-appeal-tribunal-rules-maya-forstater.
Seems that the Indian in charge thinks that National Socialism is just too true!

Very very lenient. Alison Chabloz recently got 18 weeks, so nearly twice as long, merely for pointing out (albeit undiplomatically) some true aspects of Jewish behaviour on an Internet podcast.
A white woman, of course…
Good grief! Incredible that there are still some people who have not woken up to the idiocy of “Boris”.
Khrushchev, in his memoirs, criticized Malenkov as a “filing clerk” and said that that was the worst kind of person to have power given to him. In our society, in the UK of 2021, we have given power to chancers such as “Boris” and little Matt Hancock, but in reality to those behind them, such as the narrowminded medical and statistics zealots of “SAGE” (aka “DUMB”, the Department Under Matt and Boris). Not to mention types such as Dominic Cummings. Result? Misery…
“Judith Gleeson”? [nb. not “Gleason” ]. Hm… I think so…((()))…[https://www.pragueprocess.eu/en/training-academy/expert-network/604-gleeson-1].

The UK’s multikulti toytown police state in operation. Pathetic, yet at the same time chilling…
Of course, The Handmaid’s Tale is fiction, literary fantasy, but reflective of a outline of possible future reality, just as The Protocols of Zion are literary fantasy yet in a sense “true”, in that they clothe the reality which is coming to pass via, inter alia, NWO, ZOG, the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, the “Covid-19” “situation” etc.
Incidentally, I see that Martin Daubney’s clip shows Vauxhall Underground Station. I wonder how many, if any (?) SIS staff who use that station, and are not asleep, and see what “British” society now is, have any reservations about defending it?
Sadly, many British people are now scared rabbits, wearing bloody facemasks even in the open air, even when walking alone. That applies particularly to the older population; as to the younger, “woke virtue-signalling idiots” covers many of them. I expect no revolt from the majority, just frightened compliance, maybe with more “North Korea-lite” clapping on command…
There is only one way…
I have not had the vaccine(s); I shall not have the vaccine(s). In youth, I always hoped to die in battle. Who knows…That may now be unlikely, but never say never…
Well…does that come under “cultural appropriation”, “cultural insult”, or some sub-species of “white genocide”?
Push her off…
Now let’s protect views on other socio-political and historical matters…
