Right said FRED

I notice OXFAM is kicking off in the Political Blogosphere with a posting over at the totally independent and not at all controlled by New Labour “LobotomyList”

Apparently OXFAM is demanding that my tax money should be given to a mixed race grinning lesbian called FRED because she is skint after blowing all her benefits on batteries (see pic below)




What the hell is OXFAM doing worrying about them for?

Oh yes, I see New Labour have their tentacles (and my money) well and truly embedded in this fake “charity”.

Tell you what Oxfam. Start a political party so we can vote for you and your policies and how you spend my money. Otherwise fuck off



UPDATE: Meet Antonia Bance, Oxfam's new deputy director of UK poverty! By strange coincidence, a Labour councillor from Oxford. Leave her goodwill messages on her blog (hat tip to Mark Wadsworth)


Isn't she lovely?

UPDATE 2 : The Lobotomylist article was written by one Moussa Haddad, Policy Officer - Race, Religion and Belief, Equality Challenge Unit, researcher for the Social Market Foundation and OXFAM policy officer for sustainable livelihoods in the UK poverty programme, based in Oxford. Guess who his boss is?

UPDATE 3 HER BLOG IS UNMODERATED!!

So what charity is gonna look after me in the few days running up to pay day when I am fucking skint?

Mark Wadsworth said...

Why don't you drop in at Antonia Bance's 'blog and tell her to her face?

I saw this on the news this morning and turned to my missus and queried why Oxfam were essentially making a party political broadcast. Wasn't it just a few years ago where we were to give a man a fish and he could only eat for a day, but give him the equipment to go fishing and he could feed his family for a whole lifetime? Surely this money, as said on the bbc of all places this morning, would be better spent tackling the underlying problems rather than spunked at the dole queue? ZaNu are already starting to pressurise anyone they can to publicly back them, expect a lot more of this in the coming months.

Why does Fred look like Ed Millibland?

You don't often see lesbians grinning. Must be the thought of all the money we're going to give her.

The worst charity has to be the Donkey Sanctuary near me. FFS. 3000 Stupid old biddies leaving their houses to it every year.

Old Holborn said...

Kev, they can leave their money to whoever they like.

I resent MY taxes being paid to a Labour pseudo charity. I have no choice.

Plenty more of them too

I am amused that Charles E Hardwidge of Nick Robinson blog fame has finally found somewhere more suited to him, where his delusional worldview won't be disturbed by cruel reality.

Fair play on her un-moderating the comments I suppose. I think she will enjoy being OH'd! I did a piece on councils on my blog this morning, if anyone can be arsed going for a look.

Silly bint has a tongue ring. She looks and sounds like Roy Hattersley.

Ooooo, OH she has stabbed me.
I have had another thrust, lets see if it hurt her.
Ill get her gob round my dick, the dyke.

Angela Eagle said...

Sucks my cock like Hattersley too.

electro-kevin said...

OH - I'm thinking of opening a nursing home AND a donkey sanctuary next door to it.

There's gold in them there hills.

Jock Coats said...

To be fair, the reasons they call this creature "Fred" sound like a good critique of big state policies:

Forgotten by those in power.
Ripped-off by taxes and the benefits system.
Excluded from opportunities.
Debt-ridden because they can’t afford to get by.


So, dismantle the state and get rid of those in power - once there they never remember anyone but those who can pay to access their chambers.

Get rid of the tax and benefit system so Fred stands a chance of making enough money to survive on.

Get rid of all monopolies and state privileges that might prevent Fred acting on opportunities to trade her way out of poverty and...

Free banking so Ms Bance's and others' political masters cannot fuck up an economy by creating asset bubbles for political ends.

I suspect that Cecil Jackson Cole would be somewhat more pleased with that response than with what will no doubt follow from the modern fake-charity still bearing the name he and his entrepreneurial Christian Oxford colleagues gave it.

This is a comment by one of her mates

Eh, WTF is that about, sounds a right silly sumation, unless your death is the objective.

It's a shite quote from the West Wing when the tec guy counsels Charlie about his ol' dear having been shot - some kinda nigga shit.

Oxfam...anyone who knows a little about 2nd hand book dealing, fancies a laugh and has 20 minutes to spare in Cardiff, check out their "specialist" bookshop in Mary St. I'm only guessing but I imagine the manager looks the stuff up on abebooks, chooses the most expensive dealer listing in the world for any given volume, and prices accordingly (with a small discount as a nod to the fact that the Oxfam stock cost fuck-all to obtain.) There's a glass display case near the cash-till with the most amusing items - last time I was there they wanted around 40 notes for a second printing of a Terry Pratchett novel, not even an especially early one. Collectors don't want second fucking printings. When I was there a member of staff was telling someone how they'd recently been targetted by thieves with shopping-lists. I assume two possible reasons for this - local students who need a book finding it cheaper to hire some light-fingered hoodie from Butetown or Splott to sort them out with the arcana on their reading-list; or word spreading somehow that the Oxfam bookshop is packed with really valuable publications...like faerie gold, they'll turn to shit and ashes the moment you take them back out into the real world. The genuine booksellers nearby (couple of shops in the arcades) must love the Oxfam shop in all sorts of wonderful ways.

William Gruff said...

I submitted this:

'Fred has a husband named Freda
Who uses a catapult to feed her.
Though she’s one ugly bitch,
She’s grown fat and rich
From a life as a client-state breeder
.'

It seems crude but is filled with subtle allusion. I doubt it will pass moderation.

defender said...

"I am going to submit an FOI request tomorrow to find out how much your salary at Oxfam is, then I’m going to publish the result on my blog."

well played OH, well played. line and length lad, line and length.

oh don't tell me...you fancy a mouthful of her fish pie, don't you penguin? well you'll probably find her floating around the ocean somewhere down your way darling, coz the safety net seems to have a fucking great hole in it. hey, don't get too excited the ice-cap's already going into melt-down - and we don't want that crack to get any wider or some poor cunt's gonna fall in and vanish forever. and while i'm on the subject make sure you take proper precautions - the world's not progressed enough to deal with the offsprog of you and the grouper...err sorry, my mistake...i forgot, that couldn't happen, could it?...you're a bird! so how's the old bi-polar triangle been behaving? swallowed anyone up recently?

Hi,

I'd like to nominate donpaskini for the Cunt of the Year Award for this nauseating piece of Zanu-Speak :

"I feel really sorry for Jacqui Smith and her husband, and indeed for all MPs at this time of year."

I am a Zanu-Labour Stooge

What a cunt.

subrosa said...

I've known for years Oxfam were part of the labour setup. Back in the 70s only around 10% of its income went to any good cause, the rest was 'admin.'

From that day I've never even stepped inside one of their premises.

The "worst" charity... Jesus shitting christ! Just in case anyone here failed to notice, electro kevin is ex plod. Big fucking surprise there. Check him out showing his subtly nuanced emotion and care for fellow sentient beings. I guess we can all be thankful you no longer wear the uniform.

There is something rotten in the heart of Gordon Brown's Downing Street, and it has infected places like Oxfam's HQ in Oxford, a Labour hell-hole, which is filled with Draper's and McBride's henchmen and wannabe special and media advisers in Brown's government: Antonia Bance for instance, self-proclaimed deputy director of the UK Poverty Programme, and is allegedly using Oxfam for her own party political ambitions, if you go by many of the comments on her blog.

Anonymous said...

did u know that Antonia Bance is a full time Oxfam employee (5 days a week), who also is a member of the Oxford City Council 'cabinet'? Oxfam is subsidising her political work, it would seem...

Jock Coats said...

Yeah. I have to say that criticism of Antonia simply for having a job at Oxfam and a role on Oxford City Council is, given the world we live in, a bit off the mark.

Very few loacl authorities "pay" councillors, even cabinet members, enough not to have to work somewhere else. From my own experience, even the work I used to do as a councillor outside of my paid 9-5 daily work warranted the alowances I got as a councillor.

It is possible that the day to day requirements of a cabinet member may require one to take time off during what would be our normal 9-5 work and many not just charitable or public sector employers allow for that sort of flexibility. Antonias "boss" as political leader on the council is also my HR director and I don't detect that there is any annoyance about the time he may take off for his council duties.

More important for me is Antonia's potential political conflict of interest. If Oxfam feel the need to have such a UK based campaign, does that not mean that government, the government of whose party she shares, has failed, would charitable efforts do better, and if so, why do we bother having a government when charity could do as good a job?

Anonymous said...

Jock, U r right...its the potential conflict of interest that bothers people..Did Oxfam assess the conflict of interest between Antonia Bance's 2 roles when they made her deputy director of the UK Poverty Programme?..I would think not! It's one think to be a local Councillor and work on Africa, but its quite another to head Oxfam's UK anti-poverty policy and campaigning work AND be the Labour spokesperson for poverty in the UK and Oxford Councillor....Shame on Oxfam for allowing this to happen, not Bance!

Anonymous said...

Have just read this on Mark Wadsowrth's Blog re Oxfam's Antonia Bance: "During [Antonia Bance's Oxfam]interview there was due consideration of line management experience. Antonia did not have significant experience in this area. The panel considered this at some length in their post interview deliberations, however on balance her limited experience was not seen as a major impediment...On balance, we feel that the recruitment process could have been improved, however, had the risks of appointing an elected local politician been more clearly assessed, we feel that it is likely that the same result would have occurred, and Antonia would have still been offered the post... From interviews with ... and ... it is clear that Antonia’s political experience and acumen were determining factors in her appointment..." That says it all!!!!
