Outrage as charity bosses pocket six-figure salaries

Nine executives at Cancer Research UK earn more than the Prime Minister, including chief executive Harpal Kumar, who pockets up to £240,000 a year.

Kumar, 50, lives in a luxury £1.6m home in north-west London and does not have a mortgage.

Peter Wanless, CEO of the NSPCC, earns a staggering £162,000 per year – £40,000 more than his predecessor Andrew Flanagan.

Last year he pictured sipping champagne, and boasted on Facebook: “This was taken while I was ‘working’ on a visit to Jersey.”

The NSPCC was among the charities that asked Olive Cooke, 92, for money before she killed herself last month.

Cooke, a poppy seller, was inundated with requests from charities she felt were “taking advantage” of her generosity.

The mother-of-three was struggling with her finances after being diagnosed with cancer.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
