(not satire – it’s coalition Britain)
Well now. Sir Stephen Bubb – the head of the association of chief executives of voluntary organisations – has written a letter to David Cameron about how disappointed charities are with the coalition government for not implementing Cameron’s so-called ‘Big Society’.
Not only are charities not being given a lead role in any Big Society – but in fact Sir Bubb complains that UK charities are now being ‘crippled’ by coalition austerity.
I’m sorry to say this – but I’ve got little sympathy for Sir Bubb and the organisations he represents. Because if charities really did fall for Cameron’s BS garbage – they must have been all a bunch of gullible idiots.
I’ll tell you what Cameron meant by his BS bollocks and it’s nothing to do with helping people with or without charities.
The Big Society was all about destroying the welfare state – pure and simple.
Or to put it another way:
Cameron’s Big Society is TOFFS paying SPIVS to rip off the PLEBS.
But if UK charities really have finally woken up to the reality of the coalition’s plans, a good start to make amends would be for any of them involved in the government’s slave labour ‘workfare’ scam to pull out of it immediately.
I won’t be holding my breath though.
