"The dirty, thieving English bastards!" : Charity rather uncharitable...

In what will be seen as yet another chapter in the heinous history of the perfidious English, it was revealed this week that the thieving bastards are now coming over the border, stealing money meant for a Scottish charity and then disappearing back over the border with the cash and spending it on English charitable objectives.

What a cunch of bunts.

Yes, it would appear that the English Society For
The Prevention of Cruelty To Animals (RSPCA) is punting for cash North of Berwick, thus taking away revenue from The Scottish Society For The Prevention of Cruelty To Animals (SSPCA).

It is thought that the latter, Scotland only charity, is considering a name change from SSPCA to SPCSA thus reading: Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Scottish Animals.
Then the Scottish charity will issue a field guide to donors, allowing them to identify suitably Scottish beneficiaries of their largesse.

For example, if you see this:

You may safely donate cash

But, if you see this:

Kill! Kill!

Contacted by The JT for comment, head office staff at the SSPCA denied that the logical thing to do would be to create a UK-wide animal cruelty charity thus saving on duplicative head office roles and freeing up cash for work in the field.

A source within SSPCA HQ said : "Grrrrrr, grrrrr
, woof, grrrrrrr, woof! Woof!" for ages until JT readers said "Yeh, OK, OK, we get the idea".

This is true. As far as I can see the SSPCA don't publish their accounts online. Why not?

Oor Christine has of course jumped on to the bandwagon: "Nationalist MSP Christine Grahame has called for the RSPCA to transfer all the money it has raised in Scotland to the Scottish SPCA."

Ah, Yes, Christine, the gift that keeps on giving...

There's no problem with the RSPCA collecting cash throughout the UK - so long as it's distributed throughout the UK. Or perhaps all cash raised for animal charities throughout the planet should be spent only in England?
