These are the top salaries at the Save the Children fund.

CEO Justin Forsyth £139,950
COO Anabel Hoult £139,950
COO / CFO & Strategic Initiatives Rachel Parr £131,970
Global Programmes Director Fergus Drake £113,300
Fundraising Director Tanya Steele £112,200
Marketing & Comms Director Sue Allchurch £111,920
Policy & Advocacy Director Brendan Cox £106,029
CFO Peter Banks £102,000
HR Director Paul Cutler £100,980

The UK average salary is 26,500.

StC has just given Tony Blair its “Global Legacy” award. What kind of people like Tony Blair? People who earn over 100,000. I am not sure that if you put money in a tin, or bought from their charity shop, you thought you were paying that many fat salaries. There are also gold plated pensions and other benefits. Justin Forsyth, the CEO, of course worked in Tony Blair’s neo-con policy unit.

As I have written before, very few charities are in any sense independent any more. Save the Children Fund gets 176 million pounds – over half its income – in grants from various governments, including over 80 million from the British government. That compares to 106 million in donations from the public. In 2012 over 70 million pounds was spent by Save the Children UK on its own staff costs. This was reduced on paper to 44 million in 2014 by the expedient of transferring some Headquarters staff from Save the Children UK to Save the Children International. I have an uneasy feeling about some of Save the Children’s accounting presentation. Justin Forsyth’s and Annabel Hoult’s salary of 139,950 sounds a lot better than 140,000 doesn’t it? Rachel Parr’s 131,970 sounds less than 132 grand.

Save the Children’s highly paid and very numerous HQ staff work in a swanky office for which they pay a staggering 6.5 million pounds a year lease. Do they really need their HQ in ultra expensive Central London? I suppose all those high earners have to get home to Islington. Their HQ costs more than all their other premises put together, including all their shops.

I wonder how much all of this is known to the 13,000 good-hearted volunteers who work many hours for nothing to support these people.

I give regularly to charity, by standing order. I am sure so do many who read this blog. If you are giving to Save the Children, I do urge you to re-target your charitable giving.

    In reply to Orwell/Huxley mix up!

    Yes , I put the wrong title down for the Author I was citing i.e Orwell, it should have been “1984. for Orwell.” The mistake arose due to the fact that I was reading about both Orwell, & Huxley, but more interested in Orwell as he was a Jesuit of the Short Robe, many refer to as Temporal Coadjutors.
    Not too sure about Huxley though.

    The fact that I wanted to get accross, however, was that the final aim of the NWO, was a Total Catholic Dictatorship. I have told you all this in different ways in so many past Posts, I have lost count. one in particular though was related to the Not so Holy Roman Empire, & I gave a Pdf D/L of a very interesting Book.

    This is so obvious when you consider, the Third Reich was a Concordat State, & that Ledochowski was pulling the strings.

    Does this sound familier to you “He who controls the past, controls the future”

    1984 is possibly the definitive dystopian novel, set in a world beyond our imagining. A world where totalitarianism really is total, all power split into three roughly equal groups–Eastasia, Eurasia, and Oceania. 1984 is set in Oceania, which includes the United Kingdom.

    I don’t think it’s beyond our imagination, to the world we now live in, do you?

    My comment on America still stands. If you think the it’s a Free Democratic Society, & it hasn’t been “NAZIFIED” then yes “YOU ARE ANOTHER BRAIN DEAD MORON.”

    What do you think the purpose of “PAPER CLIP” was all about then?

    Stop thinking of Ethnic Divisions, & you might start to understand, as you obviously don’t now!
