Many people play the People’s Postcode Lottery, which claims to have raised £118 million for charity in the UK, since starting up in 2005. Last year, according to their Annual Accounts, nearly £54 million was paid out to charities, some direct, and others via Postcode Trusts which they have set up.

Most of the money they raise goes to thoroughly worthy causes, such as the Battersea Dogs Home, PDSA, Riding for the Disabled Association, Dementia Adventure, and many, many more.

I wonder though whether many realise that millions are also sent to politically oriented charities like Friends of the Earth and WWF.

Not to mention the extremely dodgy Clinton Foundation.

    “The Clinton Foundation” aka “The Clinton Crime Family Foundation”???? Seriously. All this does I feather Hillary Clinton’s nest and give almost nothing to actual good works. Trust me, she, Bill and Chelsea are not good works.

    Wonder if my new charitable trust “Saving the World from Climate Activist Induced Poverty and Line a Worthwhile Pocket” will attract National lottery funding?

    Maybe I need a catchier name.

    Yes…I suspected that and think it was mentioned earlier. How come a lottery cannot pay out to its subscribers only…why all the blood suckers as well? Just constantly wrong!

    It’s not known as an ‘Idiot Tax’ for nothing.

      I suppose if a “voluntary levy” on the arithmetically challenged works they aren’t going to all that curious about where their money goes.

      That said – FoE, WWF and CF shouldn’t have been allowed charity status in the first place.

    As far as I’m concerned WWF is just a vile propaganda unit.
