RIP Captain Sir Tom

I’m surprised no one has noticed the Nigerian address as the bottom - that’s the clearest sign it’s a wind up surely!

So, a 35-year-old man has been arrested & charged for tweeting this:

"The only good brit soldier is a deed one, burn auld fella, buuuuurn."

...with a picture of Captain Sir Tom underneath.

It's undoubtedly offensive to some, but should it be an arrestable (let alone a chargeable) offence?

No.

What happened to free speech ???!?!?!?!?!

(I know it never existed but this is what the right wingers always cry when they're stopped spouting racist and homophobic drivel)

Well, you could argue the same about freedom to walk the streets and that (definitely suspended right now). Dodgy

Pretty much that, yeah Loon

He's been charged under the Offensive Communication Act. He's based in Scotland, so the act is separate to England & Wales' law, but we have a very similarly worded one down here too. It covers stuff like hate crime, stalking, threats of violence, breach of court order etc which are fairly clear. The problem is it also covers "grossly offensive", "indecent", & "obscene" social media posts, & "communication of false information", which is so vague it allows stuff like this to happen.

If the US had a law like that, the Orange Idiot would very likely be in jail now.

I cannot believe the way some folk think, this was a total wind up from the start, the only thing that made me smile was the thought that went into that photo plate.

so..

it seems, as seemed pretty obvious to anyone who wasn't drowning in the 'St Tom' stuff, that the daughter and family of Captain Tom had another beneficiary in mind other than the NHS...
The family of Captain St Tom.

They took over half of all money raised as 'admin fees', tried to give his daughter a 6 figure salary as head of the charity and it turns out the walking round the garden thing wasn't Capt Toms idea.. it was his son-in-laws idea.
Charity Commission are investigating now and its likely the police will get involved.

Oh dear.

They’re a spectacularly stupid bunch if they thought no one would notice and object to such blatant theft.

Your Garden Made Perfect had a garden in a mental health hospital that had a grant of £3000 for a makeover from the money that was raised by Sir Tom. It’s not all bad.

But other worthy and deserving projects won’t  be funded, because thieves are pocketing and spending wads of cash for their own personal benefit.  Donors clearly intended their contributions to go towards legitimate needs related to the NHS.

The Captain Tom Foundation was started as a charity to keep donations and fund-raising going. It’s the foundation’s own annual statement of accounts that shows it only distributed 160,000 pounds to ‘good works’ while spending 240,000 on ‘management and fund-raising’, paying 54,000 to companies owned by the daughter and son-in-law. Compare to the 1.1 million the charity took in donations for the same period.

It’s easy to find info online comparing what percentage of its intake a charity actually distributes to the intended cause, versus administration. Reputable charities distribute >80% >90%.

Apparently the daughter was on This Morning today, in tears, about how everyones got it all wrong and her taking £65K a year for running the charity is really not much at all.

Judging from comments in the press and on social media, this PR attempt at salvaging her reputation did not go down well at all LOL
