Recycling taxes through charities

And into the Labour Party.

A CHARITY that has had more than £840,000 of loans quietly written off by a government fund has made two unlawful donations to the Labour party.

Catz Club, which runs after-school clubs for children, paid £30,000 to attend two Labour fundraising events at Wembley stadium. Charity law bans the use of charitable funds to bank-roll political parties.

To be honest, while I know nothing of this specific charity, I can\’t say that I\’m surprised at the basic activity. They have form.

Like, umm, giving millions to the unions for "modernisation" and then getting millions in donations from the unions.

  1. Devil’s Kitchen and others have examples of equally pernicious but far, far larger abuse of taxpayer’s money – that of Government funding ‘charities’ to lobby the Government.

    If the money wasn’t given volutarily, can it still be called a charity?

  2. I think we may find that this sort of thing has been going on for some while and is of Madoff proportions.
