Since mass im migration, we no longer need to have aid for the impoverished Overseas, as they are all here now, breeding us into their poverty and claiming the ‘aid’ direct from source.

Give to the animal charities instead imo. as our taxes already keep the former, but each to his own.

freedom, you could always buy a few nuts to put out in the garden, or county-side, or feed wildlife yourself with a variety of available food to ease your angst at those at the top skimming off more than they deserve. Direct feeding is good as it keeps it local.

Yet don’t forget the supermarket top dog, will be making millions from their customers. So in your case, best grow your own seeds on your own plot to feed wildlife.

Yet then again the mortgage lender will be making millions from all the land and homes under their control.

Best not bother, and leave it to those who do care for genuinely desperate hunger pains of animals as our council build over their food sources and habit, not stress over some already overly funded wasters numerous clones.

you miss the point ally stair – I am all for businesses making profits and employees, including the top dog getting as much as possible, however, I do not agree with anyone being paid to work for a charity.

charity is meant to be voluntary and that includes all those working for it.

Those running these charities should be doing it out of the kindness of their hearts for free, as do those on the ground level.

i will not donate one penny to any charity, ever, when I see someone pocketing the donation as wages, then possibly spending it in the pub on booze.

when i see notices saying “xx of each sale goes to xx charity ” – I purposely do not buy whatever it is that is being sold.

I will happily support a charity where no one takes a single penny in salary or expenses.
