Today's Charity of Contempt Award goes to Save The Children, who have kicked off a campaign to persuade Gordon Brown to use our tax money to pay eliminate medical care fees in Africa.
LONDON (Reuters) - Gordon Browns across Britain are calling for leaders of rich nations to help African countries abolish healthcare fees when the G8 meets in Germany next month.
In a publicity stunt, charity Save the Children has dispatched a car to travel round the country and find 840 people with the same name as the next prime minister.
Save the Children is campaigning for the G8 to pay for the abolition of healthcare fees in Africa and hopes by getting all the Gordon Browns in Britain to sign up, it might influence the Brown in government.
Just what the fucking fuck is going on? Get your grubby little hands off our money, you robbing bastards. If you want to try to persuade individuals that your cause is worth fighting for, then persuade them to voluntarily donate cash to it; do not lobby the Cyclops King to give even more of the money which he has extorted from the people of this country to the economic black hole that is Africa.
Do you see the difference between "voluntary contributions" and "money extorted with menaces from the taxpayers of this country to pay for our public services", you evil fucks?
Furthermore, it isn't even a decent cause. Matt Sinclair sums up the reason for this very nicely, in fact.
Brilliant, let's reinforce in African leaders minds that their budget is purely there for the purpose of enslaving or massacring their people. Replicate the dependency of poor regions in rich countries on an international scale. Create yet more corruption that ruins the chances of poor nations building decent states.
I'm not saying there's necessarily no role for international aid. Clearly at times, during disasters in particular, considerations about incentives and corruption need to go out of the window. However, institutionalising global healthcare provision is a dismal idea.
Quite. So don't lobby an unelected leader to spend extorted cash on a fucking stupid project. Save The Children join the NSPCC (amongst others) on my list of charities that I will never give to. Ever again.
God, I hate these people so very, very, very much.
