A tale of two charities: The Intercom Trust and ASH
Two posts ago, I wrote about Chris Grayling’s comment that B&B owners should be allowed to choose who stays in their premises. Leg-iron left a link to a hotel in Blackpool which is only open to homosexual men. He went on to blog about it himself.
I left a rather lengthy comment on Leggy’s blog comparing an LGBT charity to ASH, another registered charity. Here’s what I discovered…
I see Old Holborn links to the Intercom Trust’s accounts (yet another LGBT ‘charity’).
I’d never heard of this outfit before, but it is yet another for the Fake Charities website.
Their 2009 income of £272,909 includes just £4,843 of voluntary donations from the public, plus another £5,355 from ‘Exeter Pride’.
All the rest appears to come from public funds. A fake charity if ever there was one, although not quite as bad as ASH!
Comparing these ‘charities’ which tend for the homosexual – in effect they are state-controlled social engineers – with the likes of ASH is interesting.
ASH gets quite a chunk of its funds from the NHS, but also from charities like Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation. And here was me thinking the money was spent on medical research.
I couldn’t find evidence of Lottery money being siphoned off to ASH, but I came across this on their website:
Children as young as 14 will be offered free nicotine patches in a drive to reduce under-age smoking, it was disclosed yesterday.
Smokers in schools and youth groups will be put on courses of nicotine patches, gum or tablets in an effort to reduce cancer rates.
The £180,000 lottery-funded pilot scheme is to be launched in Lanarkshire, where almost half of deaths from cancer are linked to smoking.
Leg-iron has convinced me that gum and patches don’t really work and neither have a few decades of propaganda:
This BBC article from the start of 2009 says:
The number of young people smoking in Scotland is at a 10-year high.
According to the latest stats, nearly a third of 16 to 24-year-olds smoke.
An 18 year-old from Newton Mearns, reckons that changing the age limit has made more young people want to smoke. “I think because the fact they put it to 18 it made it more cool…,” he says. “It’s a coolness thing.”
So, the 18 age limit wasn’t quite successful. They must be scratching their heads to try and invigorate their few remaining brain cells in their quest to work it out.
The antismokers get a very large amount of their money from:
a) The government’s web of departments;
b) Other charities (making it almost look like money-laundering);
c) The National Lottery
Now compare with the aforementioned Intercom Trust. They get nearly all their money from the same places.
Lottery money provides a huge part of their funding, including Heritage fund money to “promote and support LGB/T Heritage and History Month activities.”
Money also comes from various government sources and the Devon & Cornwall Police.
The work this fake charity does is interesting. Now, I am not suggesting that some people don’t get a hard time for their lifestyle choice, but the Report of the trustees for their last financial year notes that their Helpline took 642 calls. That’s not even two per day on average.
This is what they have helped people with,
We have enabled homeless people to access shelter, and people with mental health problems to negotiate with local mental-health care providers so as to make services more accessible; tenants and landlords have been brought together with positive outcomes for both sides; we have mediated between people in severe difficulties and their local police service to make it possible for the police to provide practical and effective assistance to some very disadvantaged and marginalised people, and thanks to our small hardship fund (the Ashton Fund) we have been able to give direct relief in critical cases of(for example) hunger and rooflessness.
I cannot really see why a ‘gay’ charity has to be available for these particular issues.
In the Spring of 2009 we began a short-term intensive campaign, called “Enough Is Enough”, to encourage phobic crime reporting in Devon. This was funded by the Safer Devon Partnership.
Report name-calling. Report a smoker in your pub. Same idea.
If a genuine crime has been committed then let us all be dealt with equally under the same laws. What we have is neighbour grassing up neighbour in a dirty game to divide us into cultural ghettos.
Perhaps the most effective tactic the homosexual activists discovered was to associate themselves with other equality issues, so that the public perception of them would be transformed from undesirable prancing queers to a poor downtrodden minority in constant need of mollycoddling. One of their favourite sayings over this past week has been, “No gays. No blacks. No Irish.”
Look at who the Intercom Trust was aligned with:
Intercom was part of a consortium which was commissioned by the Dorset County Council Local Area Agreement Partnership Board to map community advocacy services in the pan-Dorset area in the fields of race and religion, disability, and sexual orientation and gender identity, and to produce a development plan for such services.
It is bizarre to me that people now believe that they have a right to be respected for engaging in unnatural sexual behaviour. They wanted tolerance, then respect, but that still wasn’t enough. Now they demand 100% compliance to the rules that Stonewall drew up for New Labour. One very slight step out of line, like Chris Grayling, and the socialist media comes down on you like a ton of bricks.
The Tories want to win the election so desperately that they won’t admit to themselves how crazy this whole situation is.
These fake charities have immense power, not only by dictating policy to the government, but by their use of the media and infiltration of schools.
To sum up this Tale of Two Charities, the National Lottery, the Government and fake charities throw money at promoting one sort of behaviour (practised by few; objected to by many), yet persecute people who partake of different behaviour (practised by many; objected to by nobody in premises where smoking was allowed).
I wonder how the Newspeak dictionary will define “equality”?
