whining charities

So what's all the fuss about?   From reading the paopers you might imagine that 'rich men ' had been restricted in the amount they can give annually to Charities. Rubbish. Any one can give any amount they want to chatities it is just from now on you won't be able to claim tax relief on your charitable giving. And about bloody time too. Not every charitiy is a paragon on virtue, many in fact are pretty dubious and why we - the tax payer - should fund a charity selected on the whim of a rich man regardless as to whether that charity is actually doing something which is in the National interest or is, as many are, a mere gravy train whose principal aim is to keep the chief executive and his/her acolytes in the manner to which they are accustomed beats me.
