Isn't it depressingly too common in all sectors? Why single charities out for a kicking? Why aren't the politicians talking more about the shocking allegations about how commonplace sexual misconduct is in parliament? Why is the BBC, who depends on MPs determining its charter and fee income, giving so much airtime to the charity allegations and so little now to the political sector ones?That's a bit of a hostage to unfolding events @srw The media smell blood in the water and would you really be surprised if victims start to come forward with allegations in the coming days and weeks? The full scale of the Savile affair and the complicity of the BBC wasn't apparent at first. As it is there have been plenty of whistleblowers coming forward saying this kind of thing is common in the charitable sector - see the Guardian and Independent links I put up earlier.
Helen Evans said in the CH4 interview linked to above -I think you might need to point to the evidence that that is what happened.
The Oxfam internal report specifically ruled out misuse of charity funds.
Fair enough, although I think your choice of words is not neutral.Helen Evans said in the CH4 interview linked to above -
"in the course of one day in 2015 she received reports from the charity's global operation of "a woman being coerced to have sex in a humanitarian response by another aid worker, another case where a woman had been coerced in exchange for aid"
The questionable interpretation of the first part has been expanded upon, so I'll just point out that the above isn't what the political allegations are about, either, so the misplaced priorities seem to be from incomprehension.it's an order of magnitude above John Prescott shagging his secretary.
No, there's been a pretty clear thread of "why is this particular instance being given so much attention right now?" Others have linked to how long incidents of this type been known. It's not even the worst instance, is it? So why do you think this one is being kept in the headlines now?Oh give over. The common thread in this thread has been "But what about them and them and them" as if that in any way mitigates what some of the NGOs have been doing.
My bold.Oh give over. The common thread in this thread has been "But what about them and them and them" as if that in any way mitigates what some of the NGOs have been doing.
Really? I hadn't spotted any.That and having digs at me personally of course
