"Gun clubs were historically registered as charities on the grounds that teaching people skills of accurate shooting could be considered as a charitable purpose for the defence of the realm. In the mid-1990s the Commission reviewed the basis of charitable status of gun clubs and concluded that the training of civilians in shooting could no longer be said to promote the defence of the realm for the public benefit. "

Maybe that will change now that we're out of the EU and will need to ramp up our military forces - we'll be on our own if the s*** were to hit the fan some time hence.

[Meanwhile, in another instance not happening]

Charity watchdog monitoring Independent Schools Association after it breached rules by engaging in ‘recreational shooting’

The Charity Commission issued the Independent Schools Association (ISA) with formal regulatory advice in May 2019 after finding the charity acted outside its charitable objects by promoting civilian recreational shooting competitions and other activities. Whilst the ISA has made progress in addressing this, it remains subject to close scrutiny by the regulator due to the seriousness of this issue.

Charities must advance their charitable purposes for the public benefit, and the Commission considers that there is only the most tenuous, if any, connection between civilian recreational clay pigeon shooting and the ISA’s charitable purpose of supporting the work of charities who contribute to the well-being of children worldwide.

[/Meanwhile]

Hypocrisy? Double standards?

Surely not.

Caught by the )(#@%&(*)$) edit guillotine again - does it have to be so aggressive?

Anyway.....




Perhaps we could start a campaign to write (not email, that's too easy for them to reply to) to the Charity Commission asking if they will investigate the ISA's engagement in clay pigeon shooting, as it seems to have precious little connection with their charitable purpose. Which is, according to the Charity Commission register:

The object of the Association is the advancement of education by fostering the highest possible educational standards in independent schools through the promotion of fellowship and co-operation among members, associates and affiliates of the Association and through co-operation with other bodies with similar charitable objects.

not sure where you are going with that ? I would be very surprised if the UK was to increase spending on its Military due to leaving the EU, NATO membership is not currently effected and as long as the UK government stays out of "Regime changing" there is no need for the UK to increase its military establishment.
Or are you expecting to go to war with the EU anytime soon ?

I've nothing against them, or the EU.

Quite the opposite, in fact.
