Sean Gabb writes, incidentally while he is not maintaining regular postings on the blog as he has other stuff to do…
“I did Rape Crisis over on the radio earlier. It’s denouncing George Galloway for his sensible comments on rape, and calling for all rape laws to be respected. One of the points I made was that RC can hardly be regarded as an independent voice. Bearing in mind that it gets the majority of its funding from the Home Office and the Equalities Unit, it should be regarded as a front for the British State – ie, it’s another fake charity. I didn’t actually accuse RC of corrupt motives, but did draw attention to the scale of funding and the fact that HMG would dearly love to put Julian Assange on the first plane to Stockholm.”
Sean points to the accounts, the most recent set available, which is not very recent by company-or-private-sector-standards and would get them heavily finded for lateness if they were a simple plumber or small retailer…which says in the small print at the back that:-
(1) “Rape Crisis” received in 2008, £6,285 from charitable and fundraising activities, and £103,750 from the Home Office, “Lankelly Chase” (which must be some place or other), “UNISON” and the Government Equalities Office”.
(2) In 2009, it received £11,214 from charitable and fundraising activities, and £196.685 from the various collectivist sources stated just now above.
I think that makes it a “fake charity, don’t you? It seems to exist to do PR to lobby the government into bring in laws that the government wants brought in.
Don’t get us wrong: we’re not saying that rape is good or all right, just because we are nasty, neoconservative-white-male-dominated mysogynistic-right-wing-fascist-capitalist-imperialist-libertarians. Just that FemiNazis have hijacked rape as an issue to take more power over individuals’ behaviours towards each other, and push that power further deeply into the hands of the state.
