Further to the previous post - I seem to recall the the octogenrian John mentioned was at one time a patron of the Optimum Population Trust, so I thought I would check. His name no longer appears in the list but a number of others that may be familiar to us do, many of them seem to be moving in from the Global Warming arena.
Interestingly I note that as of a couple of weeks ago they now have charity status.
I must do some more reading to ascertain just how their aims and objects fit in with the concpets of running a charity - but if Transport 2000 can be thought of as a charity I guess the OPT qualifies.
I wonder if I could register myself as a charity.
Or, better, could we get NumberWatch registered as a charity and take advantage of the financial rules as they apply.
Does anyone else think that there are too many charities around with overt political aims and being run by people who clearly have self serving agendas and extremely leftist politics?
