tv ads raising money for third world countrys

#1
Hi all

Im not trying to come across as a racist but ffs im getting fed up being asked to palm out money to places like africa, when we all know its wishfull thinking if even half the cash raised actually gets where they say its going.

One that is knobbing my goat at the moment is the red nose knob `jamie oliver` and his annoying buy 1 and get another by paying the same as the first `thus giving more to kids with HIV

Dont get me wrong, but i would love the world to be free of suffering and poverty, but like shite thats gonna happen buying bloody red noses.(i do my bit for charity but choose wisly )

plus whats the point in giving to kids with hiv, who were condem`d by thier OWN parents to die a nasty slow death.

it doesn`t say they will buy condoms with the money so the bloody parents can go at it `hammer and tongs` and NOT leave these kids with no hope.

Im mean its not like we havn`t enough suffering in our own country
plus by now we`ve sent soooo much rice over there,they could start thier own chinese takeaway.

the same ads` every ad break(no i really forgot about the suffering since the last ad 10 minutes ago.

give them seeds and shovels and let them get on with it(we`ve all seen the water pumps they have` so water isnt too bad.( malaria pills/jabs)

give a man a net and he will catch his own fish etc etc etc

and if these celebs really cared, they would shell out thier own money to help instead of doing a short ad `free of charge.

and footballers could make a big differance with that kinda money.

why even bother when most people will just think why should i(thus the chain of people saying the same continues and nothing gets done)plus we are all human and out for number 1(unless your rich and soft)

rant over (bad day)sorry,but some good points

any other ads that get your goat (apart from debt ads)

I do agree that the battering of ads to save the whale/dolphins/sprogs or the Hump Backed Knacker Frog only found on Ilkley Moor can be oppressive and while charity should begin at home, I believe the decision to give should begin AND END at home as well and not on the TV.

If I want to give to charity and I do but only to certain causes then I will give at the office and partially drowning a has been celebrity in a bath of semolina will not alter that fact. And the red nose only covers his already red nose due to his alcohol problem.

What gets me is that for the past 25 years we have had charity events raising millions of pounds for these peoples and here we are again raising even more. Don't get me wrong I'm not against charity but after 25 years they seem to be worse off than when we first started. Whats the point in raising cash if nothing changes?

i know how to get celebs to part with the cash!!

do an airdrop over africa with the celeb cover`d in a female elephant/rino/lions urine and leave them with a mobile so they can try and buy thier way out.

if they dont,we can atleast watch some seriously good tv.

charity begins at home is also my motto,i do give my old stinking boots to the charity bins and ripped and shatin undies.

im a true giver me!:)

charity begins in the home.

when our pensioners can heat their homes in the winter without fear of bankruptcy then maybe we could entertain other charities.

no point cos the hired care help lets them rot or abuses them anyhow.

council tax is the noose round are throats,and blair knows it(sitting in his warm little house)

and they expect the general public can pay charitys.cheeky Bast*rds

You're wrong, British money has improved people's lives. Keep donating.

King Mswati III of Swaziland, one of the world's poorest countries, has spent £450,000 on 10 new BMWs for his 11 wives and three teenage fiancees.

His latest extravagance is equivalent to almost half the £1 million of British aid that Swaziland received last year.

The cost of the BMWs is equal to 1.5 per cent of Swaziland's health budget of £30 million.

If the Queen were to show the same extravagance in Britain and blow the same proportion of the health budget she would have to spend £1.2 billion on new vehicles.

Seventy per cent of Swaziland's one million people live in absolute poverty. Around 39 per cent of all adult Swazis are infected with HIV or Aids – the highest proportion in the world.

And the government is so strapped for cash that government ministries cannot buy any new furniture this year.

King Mswati, who was educated at Sherborne school in Dorset, is Africa's last absolute monarch. His subjects are increasingly indignant over his lavish self-indulgence. Mario Masuku, the leader of the outlawed opposition People's United Democratic Movement, said: "Against the backdrop of poverty, of HIV and Aids, and of drought, the monarchy is so extravagant as to buy such expensive cars. This is inappropriate and insensitive.

"The government should look at its priorities. Any leader worth his salt would say, 'what does my country need?' But because the leadership in Swaziland relies on donor funds, the king knows that donors will carry on pumping funds into Swaziland so he can behave in this way."

Swaziland is kept afloat by more than £14 million of international aid. Yet last year, the king spent almost £9 million on palaces, parties and cars. His 36th birthday party, which was celebrated in the national stadium with 10,000 guests, cost £330,000.

Gordon Brown, the British Chancellor, has proposed the doubling of international aid for Africa and the cancellation of the continent's debts. If this happens, Swaziland would gain about £38 million.

In 2002 King Mswati tried to spend £25 million on a private jet but was forced to back down because of outrage among his people and protests from aid donors.

All opposition parties are banned in Swaziland and the king's latest extravagance shows that he has no intention of mending his ways.

King Mswati has chosen two new fiancees in the past six months. The latest was a fortnight ago when he became engaged to a 17-year-old schoolgirl. All of the wives that he has amassed during his 19-year rule are showered with palaces and cars.

He is believed to be making up for the loss of two of his queens, who have fled to neighbouring South Africa. Every new queen makes a greater demand on public funds.

I have refused to fund Africas despots for several years now. It is a money pit of corruption that gets worse each year and shows no signs of improvement so why fcuking bother.

People will argue that why make the innocents suffer but they don't get the aid sent anyway so just stop giving it.

Do What I do, turn the telly over and watch something else on rednose day.

I dont give a penny to any of these TV charities, including that one with the injured bear pudsey...after so many years and so many millions donated, you'ld have thought they would have cured the fecker by now.

I occasionally buy things from charity shops like, help the aged, Cancer research and the one that used to be called the spastics society...cant for the life of me remember what they call it now!! Mllars 'r' us??

You can get some good second hand books there far cheaper than buying them new, and thats usually where I buy greetings cards...(not second hand ones though as i dont have any friends or relatives called Mildred who are celebrating a 73rd birthday!!)

tipex cures those cards:)

i didnt like charity shops but having a misses that does stopped all that fussyness:)
plus you can pickup some good pc games sometimes.

tip::dont shop in a charity shop which stocks exotic coffie(they up thier prices)

The local tip has a section of dumped goods which they sell on, and you can find some real bargains(like my lcd 42inch lg tv)£50 for an £800 tv, but no remote but the all-4-1 solves that.

and its still recycling!!:)im cheap you know

I hate it when you get those plastic bags shoved thru the letterbox,usually about 3 a day allfrom different mong collectors asking for your cloths.Then if you dont fill them & leave the bag on the doorstep the bar stewards never lift it!

Isn't that why Millisle is called Sandy Row On Sea?

Better they collect it than help themselves.

perzakly mate, my sentiments entirely.

If Bono wants to organise all the fundraising for us to drop our hand, well let him drop his own fekin hand and shell out from his pocket if he wants to, why harass the rest of us. Stick to the fekin banjo, OBE seeking git.

Charity starts at home. I give the locals a days work but the beggars leave here hungry and a flea in their ear if they don't want to work.
