Well, yes Mr. Eavis

Meanwhile, the Glastonbury festival founder, Michael Eavis, said he would continue to support the charity.

Speaking at the NME Awards on Wednesday night, he said: “We’ve raised millions through the years with Oxfam – six million quid and everyone’s said what a wonderful charity they are and we still support them.

“And for a few dodgy people – like with the NHS you get a few dodgy doctors and it doesn’t discredit the NHS, does it? So why should it affect Oxfam?”

And a few dodgy bankers shows that capitalism must be overturned, does it?

  1. Daft yokel’s skinned up one too many cowpats.

    If there is good work to be done in the aid field*, why not fund an organisation that does this work without wasting the bulk of donations on high salaries and leftist propaganda, snaffling taxpayers’ hard-earned and without making the destitute suck elderly Belgian cock in exchange for food?

    Of course millionaire Eavis and the sort of prosperous cunts who go to Glastonbury probably think the pinko agitating is exactly what Oxfam should be doing.

    *I remain to be convinced that – apart from in the case of disasters – aid does any good. Cutting all the aid and offering free trade would be better.

  2. Having a dodgy doctor doesn’t discredit the NHS, no. How the NHS deals with it (or more accurately, doesn’t!) does.

    Might be a lesson for Oxfam there.

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    A few dodgy priests …..

    This is endless fun. I think I might enjoy Community Organising after all:

    “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
    “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
    “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

  4. Greater self-love hath no man than this, that he lays out other people’s money to further his own beliefs.

  5. A few dodgy coppers made the Met “institutionally racist”.

    Funny how small minorities either reflect or don’t reflect the organisation, depending on where that organisation exists on the political spectrum.

  6. So Much For Subtlety

    Rob – “A few dodgy coppers made the Met “institutionally racist”.”

    Actually a complete inability to find any coppers doing anything wrong made the Met “institutionally racist”. “Institutionally racist” being the modern equivalent of witch craft. You can’t see it, but it is all around and it causes all bad things.

  7. Systematic cover up of the widespread sexual assault of vulnerable women and children is “a few dodgy people”?

    These lefties have no shame when protecting their own.

  8. Has the burden of proof reached “everyone says” now?

    My Mum taught me quite rigorously that “everyone says” is not an argument.
