I have no problem with their spending their salaries on prostitutes.
Whether they should be using harrowing pictures of starving children to fund their six figure salaries and luxury villas is a differnt matter. You can look at Oxfam's accounts on the Charity Commission website. They have to make their accounts public to get their charity tax status. They don't tell us more than they have to - they are as coy about their expenses as Members of Parliament. But at least they can't disguise oxfam employees on 6 figure salaries.

I would hardly call that a "Luxury Villa". Even the Mali couldn't tart it up to look much better than your average holiday apartment. Where do they expect them to stay? In tents?

StuartO - 2018-02-12 5:13 PM    ....  I haven't bothered wading through all the long nested posts by Anthony1969  and John52  so I might have missed a comment from you amongst those.....


Eh ????? ....."long nested posts by Antony 1969 or John 52" ..... You for real ..... Its not often I stick up for John but think you'll find most of your posts are way longer than mine or Johns put together .... If your going to insult then make sure ya get your facts right Stuart ... Too long for ya ???


Sorry,didn't mean to criticise your brevity, it's just than when the two of you are playing ping pong in familiar ways and covering the same sort of ground, often trying to nail each other down to re-make a point, with posts dominated by multi-nesting as the easy way to keep your argument going, even though your ping or pong this time might be concise, I tend to skip over them.

We all have the right to choose which posts we find interesting don't we?

I should add I see no problem with their taking prostitutes back to the villa - its still costing us the same £1200 a month whether its used for prostitutes or not. Whether we should be paying so much to rent a villa there is a different question. In any case I think Oxfam should tell us the truth about where our money is really going. This is not what they tell us in their fund raising campaigns

I wonder what percentage of Oxfam donors have a private swimming pool - or would donate voluntarily if they knew thats where their money was going

Bulletguy - 2018-02-11 4:06 PMI had to Google search to find out what news item it was you were on about.Whilst prostitutes should have a right to ply their chosen trade it seems not so in Haiti as it's illegal so that seems clear enough. Oxfam’s country director in Haiti, Roland van Hauwermeiren, who, according to the report, admitted using prostitutes at the villa rented for him by Oxfam with charitable funds, was allowed to resign. He should have been sacked.
For goodness sake this is Haiti....a third world sh1thole as lawless as it is possible to get amidst other quite civilised countries/islands.Just because Papa Doc and Baby Doc have moved on nothing has really changed there so I fail to see the relevance, or indeed newsworthiness in a report that aid workers, irrespective of appointment, used prostitutes.
As quoted in the article i linked i expect it's the fact they appear to have used (abused) the charities premises, or at least the director had. A charity which does excellent humanitarian aid work all over the world but relies on public donations. What they do in their private life outside of work is their business, but ceases to be once they begin using facilities not owned by them.
I’d go further BG. It is not acceptable for any aid worker to go to a country and exploit some of the most vulnerable and desperate to satisfy their lust. Engaging in the most intimate of human contact with someone who treats you like a piece of meat to be used and then cast off has to be one of the most miserable and dehumanising forms of all social interaction.
It's certainly not what i'd expect from any charity aid workers. If they must have a prostitute, then there are plenty in their own country.
Now that is ridiculous. Just for example a young fit chap who happens to be German (so yes there are plenty of prostitutes there)is working a 9 month contract in Haiti. According to your premise if he feels in need of sexual relief and there is no girlfriend/non prostitute to, shall we say, oblige the young man he is supposed to remain celibate or jump on a jet and fly back to Germany?
Oh i've no doubt as an example, our Embassy staff have 'got busy' in the past with some pay to play girls.......but very much doubt any have been daft enough to use the Embassy buildings or Ambassadors residence as a brothel. That certainly would not go down too well with UK taxpayers.
As for your other comment what you said was:"What they do in their private life outside of work is their business, but ceases to be once they begin using facilities not owned by them".These people are transient workers/managers who live in accommodation provided by the company or the rent is paid by the company. For example the UN does this for all it's workers. Therefore how can your premise of what they do outside work in their private life is their business but ceases to be when using facilities not owned by them when they clearly do not own their accommodation?
Sort of ties in with the above really Roger. I've no idea what kind of employer you had but once i'd done my allotted shift and was off their premises.....that was it, i was free to do what i liked. However if any one us fancied hooking up with a prostitute, even in our own time, we would certainly not be allowed to use company premises or facilities to entertain them.Perhaps you had a very lax employer who gave everyone carte blanche to do what the heck they liked on work premises?
Bullet you are either playing devils advocate or are talking nonsense. I never once mentioned as you put it 'company premises' and therefore your 'lax employer' comment really was not called for. I clearly said that those working abroad are usually accommodated either by the company or receive a rent allowance from the company. Therefore the employee, according to your assertion, when at his/her accommodation is never allowed to indulge in whatever their private life needs/desires might be because they 'do not own them'.So which is it ...'outside work' or 'facilities not owned by them'? To me there is a clearly understandable difference.
Facilities not owned by them. I would have though that patently obvious? Not to mention them being funded by public donations. They should have booked an Hotel room.Oh and maybe we should forget that other awkward matter of prostitution being illegal in Haiti, a bit like running a brothel is in UK, so to make matters worse, senior Oxfam officials were indulging illegal activities in a foreign country. Brilliant.

Ah ...facilities not owned by them. You have used so many different statements regarding 'not owned'....'work place' etc that I really think you are losing the plot.

So by your position no one working anywhere and living in rented accommodation which is paid for by the company has the right to a private life in their accommodation?

I say this because you said:

'What they do in their private life outside of work is their business, but ceases to be once they begin using facilities not owned by them".

Clearly living in rented accommodation paid for by the company is not something the employee owns now is it?

For goodness sake you're spouting like some puritanical preacher.

It is Haiti........lots of things are illegal there 'on paper' but as it is a third world country the law in reality is somewhat lax and/or corrupt.

I really think it is time you looked at things in a realistic manner rather than an idealistic armchair outlook.

Yeah but you probably had no choice. I never understand why some people think people who work for a big charity should have crap perks and work for nothing. Charity is like a business and as such needs to attract the right people. £1200 a month for a villa? I doubt its a villa. Probably a shared pool in an apartment. Maybe Haiti is cheep I dunno but you wont get a decent villa for £1200 a week let alone a month in most places.

This "appears" like the recent Presidents Club debacle to have been blown out of all proportion and could according to the lunchtime news bring Oxfam to its knees. The only losers there will be the poor that greatly needed Oxfams help. We seem to have a knee jerk reaction to just about anything these days before we know all the facts. If a few people need sacking then sack em, make a few rule changes and just sort it out.

Graph shows how much foreign aid has increased under the Tories despite rapidly increasing rough sleeping on their own doorstep.
Goes to places favoured by the Tories.
£5 billion to Ireland in advance of the Royal visit.
Corbyn points out it isn't going to Venezuala despite how bad we are told things are there.
Of course, rather than answer that awkward question, the Tory Media says that Corbyn merely asking that question makes him a rabid Communist

Re-quoting because you are avoiding the crux of your argument every time....and moving the goalposts.

Just answer this if you can:

If the company either rents the property or pays the individual to rent a property then it is clear that the individual 'does not own the property'. The main issue is 'does not own' which is what you said.

 You claim that:

"What they do in their private life outside of work is their business, but ceases to be once they begin using facilities not owned by them"

So when and where does the employee ever get to do anything that is 'their own business'.

Quite a simple question really but I expect you will avoid answering because your premise is entirely bonkers......IMO.

I'm getting worried now because I find myself agreeing with Roger
It still costs Oxfam £1200 a month whether they take prostitutes there or not, so what difference does it make where they take them?

I would hardly call that a "Luxury Villa". Even the Mali couldn't tart it up to look much better than your average holiday apartment. Where do they expect them to stay? In tents?


Why not? ........

I don't recall us Navy folk being offered such accommodation when they were landed in such places to help the locals? .........







Yeah but you probably had no choice. I never understand why some people think people who work for a big charity should have crap perks and work for nothing. .


Coz its for CHARrity .......

I think the premises they used is irrelevant compared to the wider issue of prostitutes leading to blackmail and corruption when dealing with such vast amounts of money.
I can't help wondering how Oxfam persuaded politicians to give them so much taxpayer's money

Re-quoting because you are avoiding the crux of your argument every time....and moving the goalposts.

Just answer this if you can:

If the company either rents the property or pays the individual to rent a property then it is clear that the individual 'does not own the property'. The main issue is 'does not own' which is what you said.

You claim that:

"What they do in their private life outside of work is their business, but ceases to be once they begin using facilities not owned by them"

So when and where does the employee ever get to do anything that is 'their own business'.

Quite a simple question really but I expect you will avoid answering because your premise is entirely bonkers......IMO.

Outside of the work schedule/hours/shift......and if using services of prostitutes, use an Hotel, not your employers premises. I've stated this God knows how many times and i'm not sure why you can't understand such a simple basic common sense fact.

Look at it like this John. We rent premises for Ambassadors residences in whichever countries they are based. That's funded by you and me, the tax payer. If this story involved some UK Ambassador holding sex orgies or whatever in the residential premise, would you be ok with that....because you are paying for the building? In Oxfam's case the money is coming from public and corporate funds so it's understandable why big corporations such as Unilever, possibly Oxfams biggest single contributor, are far from impressed.

Firstly my understanding is that prostitution in Haiti in illegal. So taking part in these activities should also be illegal.

Aid workers using their position to acquire sexual services in return for aid must be punished by the employer as a sackable offence.

Aid workers should be putting food in the mouths of these people, not their dicks!

My biggest client is a charity. Are you saying I should work for them for free? All their workers are well paid and because of that they do a good job. Pay peanuts you get monkeys.

I dont think they hold any orgies though. Least none ive been invited to.

Really ... The charity my missus works for pay good money especially to management but it doesn't necessarily mean they do a good job ... Maybe thats why they escorted the top dog out of the building not that long ago never to be heard of again

People have different ideas about what is 'doing a good job'
In charities it might be raising the most funds
But there is only so much money to go round and if you give it to one you can't give it to another.
So should charities be spending £millions on fundraising campaigns just to compete with each other?
