Why does an ex-RM Commando Paul Farthing feel it's important his staff should be evacuated?

Well, such vast sums of money flowed into Nowzads coffers, you worked think that the animals lived in a modern purpose build animal sanctuary in sybaritic luxury in Kabul.

Sometimes, the pictures don't sell the 'best' story'. His sanctuary looks like some mad dog ladies house and back garden - he seems to use a lot of locally scrounged scrap for the facilities, certainly nothing like purpose build cages and facilities.


Mind you, £200k armoured M Wagons, jetting around the world and all expenses paid adventure holiday breaks to America, (fundraising apparently), don't come cheap.
there are video clips on the website of him on SoCal beaches showing off his torso (for the benefit of his female fans), having driven across CONUS dropping off flea bags. A bit tone deaf when it comes to charity fund raising.

He does seem to have a 99+% female fanbase

Ah....

Despite the obvious two and twenty, if you were a fan of Beyond Our Ken, or Round the Horne, there would be two possible answers.

"Thirty-five years!"
or
"Nine and an 'arf" .
Or Spike Milligan,

'How long were you in the army?'

'Five foot ten inches.'

Starting a charity does seem to be the thing to do rather than actually getting a job when leaving the Forces. For example there are at least 3 sailing related veterans charities in the South West. Its a nice lifestyle if you can make it work.
 
So this charity is not required to be subject to the same degree of scrutiny as others?
Try to explain that to a group of menopausal women who refer to cats as "fur babies', yet are triggered if the flea bags are called pets and see St Pen of Kabul as a leader of a new cult, fighting off the conspiratorial machinations of Joe Biden and Ben Wallace. And they are oblivious to the concerns about both funding and expenditure of the charities that Farthing has his hands on.

He was a Marine, apparently. Who knew?

Pets you say? Marines you say? :wink:
 
Morning All,

Should ask Pen for his expertise perhaps?
