Does wee Scotland have Britain’s most overpaid charity boss?

In England and Wales, our biggest animal charity is the £107m-a-year 2,217-employee RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). But up in Nicola Sturgeon’s one-party state – the glorious Democratic People’s Republic of Scotland (twinned with North Korea) – they have their own big animal charity – the £14.4m -a-year 345-employee SSPCA (Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

Smart readers will have hopefully spotted that the RSPCA with a turnover of £107m a year and 2,217 employees is more than slightly larger than the wee SSPCA with just £14.4m a year and a mere 345 employees.

Given this, you might have thought that the boss of the SSPCA would be paid rather less than the boss of the much larger RSPCA. How wrong you would have been. The boss of the wee SSPCA received around £216,320 in the latest financial year, while the previous boss of the much larger RSPCA got somewhere between £140,000 and £150,000. In fact, despite the SSPCA being just 13% of the size of the RSPCA, the SSPCA’s boss’s salary was more than 40% higher than that of the RSPCA’s boss.

Moreover the wee SSPCA paid its boss more than any of the much larger animal and bird charities in Britain:

The six-figure sum dwarfes the pay of both Prime Minister David Cameron, who is on £142,000, and First Minister and Supreme Leader Nicola Sturgeon, who gets paid £135,000 a year.


It’s a fine old life being a charity boss – especially up in Bonnie Scotland!

    How’s that anti-halal slaughter campaigning going on guys? Earn your ridiculous salaries – don’t they include danger money as well?

    Charities should be run by volunteers, there are many skilled recently retired i.e. Public Sector employees retire at 55 or 60 with nice fat pensions.Remember the vast Public Sector, Government Employees, Council Workers, NHS workers all take out of the system ,sure we need some of them, but where is the money going to come from to pay them and their pensions now that the country has maxed out all available credit on our £8 Trill. of debt. we cannot pay back. QE Infinity?, QE for the People? Hyper Inflation, the Parallels with the Weimar Republic are astounding and look how that turned out, some people never learn or refuse to take their head out from up their own Jacksy. Simples.

    My neighbour took clothes and other items to the local Red Cross last Christmas. As she was about to leave the items she was giving them she asked why there were no Christmas decorations or trimmings. The reply she received was that the Red Cross does not promote or celebrate Christmas, my neighbour picked up the items she was donating to them and took them home again.True Story that.

    Just deleted my Facebook Account, thank god caused nothing but trouble and only benefits Zuckerberg and hiss cronies. What a performance getting it deleted, having to ask/request to please remove it.Anything you do in Gmail or Facebook is recorded stored or even becomes their property,who in their right mind would tolerate that.

    I see the BBC (British Bullshit Corporation) having setup and fired Jeremy Clarkson have done a hatchet job on Tim Wonacott of Bargain Hunt. Seems like he fell for the trap they set for him too.

    Whilst his behaviour is hardly admirable, the solution is really very simple. Just stop donating, preferably with a message explaining why.

    I tend towards the view that any organisation whose number of paid employees exceeds zero is not really a charity. When they are dishing out 200 big ones to a former aquarium manager then they don’t even come close.

    Obama says “Jump” and Cameron says “How high” , Obomya says “Refugees” Cameron says “How Many”.

  • tony blair

    The influx of unwanted peoples is making Europeans aware of the high cost of enabling US foreign policy. Advisors have told Obama that the idiocy of the neoconservatives’ policies threaten Washington’s empire in Europe.

    Camerons Imperial Rule and occupations continue whether they are wanted or not, British troops to occupy and enforce Obamas will in all his Vassal states of Europe.You Will take Refugees you Will allow us to intimidated and reopen and infect old wounds.

    “To underline its readiness as a NATO member and defend its allies in light of increased Kremlin aggression, the UK will ensure a regular presence of a company-size military personnel in the Baltics, the British Embassy in Riga said. “

  • Steven Sergeant

    I see the EUSSR trying to con,Ukraine ,Armenia,Azerbaijan,Belarus,Georgia and Moldova into their grasp. Save yourselves keep the hell away, it will be the last thing you do as an independent nation if you get involved with the dying European Empire, doomed to fail experiment.They will take as many down with them as they can.

    Muslim family are driven from their home… after they converted to Christianity: Neighbours vandalise car and call them ‘blasphemers’

    Oh the tolerance of others and other Religions is astounding NOT.

    Back on the charity track. Age concern (and probably other too) preys on the elderly. My mum suffers from serious dementia and frequently gets letters asking her to leave money in her will to Age concern.

    I never give to any charitable organisation but the Government does. Just like foreign aid our money and indebtedness is wasted and those middle management failures enrich themselves at our expense.

    With regard to mass invasion of the UK, you may be interested to see this article

    It makes me even more angry about the swarm pouring in and yes as some of the comments made I too voted for UKIP.

    The sooner we are out of the EU, Cameron gone, our countries boarders sealed and mass deportation of these invaders back to there home countries the better. And we must stop being Americas poodle and leaving dictators in power whom knew how to control there lands (too late the west collaborated to remove these rulers).
