But there are suspicions that the corruption got even worse than this. That Labour actually set up new charities, packed the boards with Labour placemen and a Chief Executive on a fat salary, with the intention of deceiving the public about the origin of political messages.
And yet still more Labour funding to left-message charities was simple gerrymandering, using tax funds to buy the payroll vote.
Each government department and every local authority is used to channel tax money to doubtful and spurious charities. The Department of Health is a good example; here is their 2009/10 'Third sector investment programme', including the following;
Action on Smoking and Health - £210,000Alcohol Concern - £450,000
Both are fully Fake Charities, with only around 1% of their income from public donations. Then there are the bribes and 'dash' to keep the payroll sweet;
£199,830 - to the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations - 'Supporting Third Sector Leaders'
Then there are the francs-tireurs, Fake Charities formed by Labour to snipe at an incoming Conservative government from behind the lines; 'National Voices' got £200,000 of tax money last year from the DH. Who they?
"Formed in 2008, National Voices is a coalition of more than 200 national health and social care organisations, coming together to ensure a stronger voice for all those who come into contact with the NHS and care services, and the voluntary organisations that help them. Our independence of Government, and our wide representation, rooted in service user experiences, gives us the authority we need to influence decision makers."
You may be choking on your cornflakes by now at that 'Our independence of Government'. National Voices' last filed accounts for 2008 show that of total income of £788,000 just £40 came from public donations, £78,450 came from pharmaceutical companies and the balance, 90% of its funding, was tax money - £380,000 of it from the DH in 2008.
Go through the list yourself. Then imagine it replicated by every other Whitehall department. And by every local authority. How many hundreds of millions of our tax money have been pissed away by Labour in this way?
It needs to end. Now.
