The Charity Commission has finally spotted what NCIA predicted at the beginning of the year, and long before –
“many charities will go bust because of their reliance on government contracts to deliver public services.”
Hard not to say “we told you so” to those who have tied themselves into State agendas with little thought about where it would lead. But the real point is what this says about the proper role of voluntary and political action in these times – to resist cuts caused by sickening amounts of our money given to bankers and tackle the impact on hard-pressed individuals and communities.
NCVO’s and other responses we’ve seen is for ” local and central government to make necessary cuts in a coordinated and proper way”. Talk about turkeys voting for xmas.
