Good job

Greenpeace isn’t a charity, it is a political lobby group and now they have lost their appeal.

Greenpeace has lost an appeal against a decision to remove its charity status.

The organisation was stripped of its charity status under the Charities Act of 2005.

Under the new act, it had to apply to the Charities Commission for the same status, however it was refused.

The Commission originally ruled Greenpeace hadn’t been maintained exclusively for charitable purposes.

Since then it’s been fighting in the courts to appeal that decision, but today the High Court has rejected that appeal.

Good job. There are plenty more alleged charities that fail this test. I suggest the Charities Commissions gets cracking on enforcement.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
