    It is instructive to note that the last reference to the scandal of Charities regulation in this country was twenty odd hours ago. Is there something wrong with me that I wonder what the reasons were for the maintenance of a ‘Charities Regulator’ and 23 staff from the public purse since at least 2009, but without any powers to regulate might not be a good thing? Qui bono? How long are we going to stand for the appearance of regulation (utter sham) with concommitant civil service pay, perks and pensions, for the mere apprearance of modern governance? We must seriously wake up in this country. Other countries may be able to afford this pr sh!te. We cannot.

      I think they minister just hasn’t activated the part of the law that allows the regulator to properly investigate charities yet. Probably due to come online once the actual thing is up and running.

        The charities act referred to has been in existence since 2009 – again I say, qui bono? I doubt that this can be a mere oversight by successive Governments. The cure? Increase the staff (pay, perks and pensions) to thirty!! That’ll fix it. The reality is that since 2009 at least we have maintained at public expense 24 people whose only real task has been to maintain a register of so called ‘charities’. How much longer can this be allowed to continue? EVERY damn thing in this country seems to be Appearance over substance.

    Very nice work indeed (and yes, the charities are in serious need of some oversight from adults).
