What really pizzes me off is the moral blackmail that passes as advertising on TV.
How dare anyone think little of me because I don't donate to their particlar 'Charity'?
I especially despise the agressive 'Useful Morons' who wave a bucket under my nose on Red Nose Day or any other so called special day.
I give to whom I want [BLESMA/Poppy Day and Sally Army in my case] and the rest can Foxtrot Oscar!!!!!!
rant over .....I feel good now.

SSAFA banks at Coutts. Yes Coutts not the Co-operative bank or Giro but the Queens Bank A charity paying out paltry sums to deserving causes where the Travelling and Subsistence costs are invariably more than the amount awarded to the desrving cause.
Have a look at the luxury SSAFA lives in. RBL too in Pall Mall Luxury Luxury and more luxury paid for from poor people buying poppies.

For information
SSAFA funding is here:
http://www.intelligentgiving.com/charity/210760/numbers?cause=202
RBL is Here
http://www.intelligentgiving.com/charity/219279/numbers?cause=202
Must agree with Norman that the top executive of the RBL is being paid rather handsomely at between £15000 and £16000 per year.

It does sound a lot of money to be honest, however they are both successful charities doing a great deal of good, what sort of person does it take to lead that success?

It doesn't sound too bad when you consider that from those figures SSAFA only spends 2.15% of its income to run itself and RBL only 1.37%, those figures appear quite efficient to me.

Perhaps someone could give us a name for this high earner? I wouldn't be suprised to find that he is ex forces and an ex senior officer with large service pension to boot.
Until I know I will reserve judgement, however I am of the opinion that if you work for a charitable organisation you should:
a. Believe in that charity
b. Do the job because you want to not for an inflated salary.

Thank f**k, I thought this was going to be another 'im leaving RR forever, Dont try and stop me!' martyr speech.

Im a bit young to offer advice here, but if its at the point where you really dont want to go to your job in the morning, then its prob time to move on. At the end of the day fella, you deserve better than that.

All the best mate.

I hope you're not right Slim, about the man at the top, but suspect you are. Not all charity work is well paid though, I've just spent 2 weeks of my resettlement working for a charity doing what I would love to do, unfortunately the reality of mortgage et al mean I can't realistically afford to do it. I wish I could.

Anyway, we had better get this thread back on track. If Blobs comes back from the pub he's going to wonder what the hell has happened, then again I do like his more inebriated posts :eek:ccasion5:

Sounds to me like the top earners in the forces charities are taking the piss.
Below are the statistics for four charities, and their are plenty others on the site I mentioned earlier.
In relation to income I believe that both SSAFA and RBL top execs are being given far too much cream from the top of the jug.

you are right on the public front, most of the general public is not qualified to be alive. and most parents should have been banned from having kids.

the amount of parents who bring their kids to my classes say things like "i dont know why he likes to punch his sister and throw chairs around"

maybe because you spend your time sat on your fat arse watching east-fucking-stenders eating pizzas and swearing at your unemployed waste of skin husband you daft bint!
and sorry ladies, but its usually the mums from my experience.

a simple test at the beginning or pregnancy would do the trick:
1. are you and the father of this child related to each other in any way?
2. can you spell your name?
3. can you pronounce the words "isnt it"?
4. how many times have you been in prison?
5. how many of your posessions were robbed from someone else?
6. are you classed as clinically obese?

any other questions you can think of would be welcome, im sure there is somebody we could submit them to....

we had a story in our local rag of "a proud grandmother at 29" Hope all her grand-kids are male and queer. She could be a great grandmother at 43

Hold on Blobbs, you made a general invite to all RR members before your Summer Tour and I waited all the NZ winter for my VIP ticket to arrive (plus air fares and accommodation expenses). I think you'd have got off very cheaply for 10,000 grand or so for the pleasure of my company. I demand a full refund and that you commit Hari Kari immediately.
Mate don't let the selfish cnuts grind you down, treat yourself once a month
withdraw a grand from the bank in fiver's, then roll around in it in your bouncy castle for an hour or so, you can always redeposit the cash again, unless of course you get over excited.
