QUANGOs and Fake Charities…

See the list in my earlier post about the NICE consultation on pecksniff cunts inspecting homes for health & safety.

Discounting the ones that are obviously arms of government (PCTs etc), and the 1 commercial organisation on the list, these are the iffy ones:

  1. It is a non-consultation, they have a get out clause at the bottom of the form:

    NB: The Institute reserves the absolute right to edit, summarise or remove comments received on during consultation on draft scope where, in the reasonable opinion of the Institute, they may conflict with the law, are voluminous or are otherwise considered inappropriate.

    If you say something they don’t like they will strike it out.

  2. Got it in one Alf Stone.

    I would like to know why I, as a taxpayer, am excluded from being a stakeholder. I’m going to ask.

    It’s not just NICE either, they’re all at it. The reply (if they bother) will be enlightening.

  4. Hi there
    there are a lot of companies in countries like Hungary, Romania, Slovenia that sell clothes donated in UK to charities like cancer research, heart foundation etc. And they are proud to say their merchandise is coming from door to door donations or it’s been directly donated to the charity shops and is top quality! How can we stop it?! I mean they are registered as legal businesses in other EU countries…And what we decide to donate to a specific charity is sold by this chaps with £1-£2 /kilo…
