    Re: UK Government urges councils to stop giving tax breaks to scientology. WINRAR!!

    I totally think this is awesome as well, but from what I understood from the article... nothing has -actually- happened yet? Like, as far as I can tell, it's just one official making a public statement to the councils that "this is a bad idea, guys." I think it's a good official stance for a single person to take, but... I dunno, it seems hollow unless the councils actually LISTEN, you know?

    Did I misread the article entirely?

    Either way WOO! The more pressure, the better!

    This looks like the beginning of the end for Scientology rates relief. I just won't know what to do with my free time.

    Possible next targets:

    - Narconon charity registration

    - VAT tax breaks

    Once it has gone as a charity then VAT breaks and NMW (National Minimum Wage). These can be done at the same time.
  11. Sponge Member

    Re: UK Government urges councils to stop giving tax breaks to scientology. WINRAR!!

    This is one of the next giant leaps though i.e. Government recognition that it is not good to give away free money without justification and warning councils specifically, and very publically, about giving tax breaks to scientology in particular. It puts more pressure on those councils, like City of London, Sunderland and Birmingham to take it more seriously and re-examine whether they were right in what they did.
  12. RolandRB Member

    Re: UK Government urges councils to stop giving tax breaks to scientology. WINRAR!!

    This is unbelievably good news but what is the substance of it. Has the government written to local authorities and instructed them to stop giving them tax breaks? We need to find out. This would be confidential of course but I think we need to find out somehow so we know what actions to take next or whether we should just all stop and wait.

    Pay no attention to that pesky organized fraud conviction in France, that damned Senator Xenophon in Australia and all our recent problems in the former Soviet Union because Scientologists are the most ethical people on the planet and everyone loves us, honest.

    A little bit. The point is, Eric Pickles is the top official in the central government department responsible for local government.

    It's his department that City of London wrote to, asking what they should do.

    He's a cabinet minister and thus a pretty senior member of the government. Weekly meetings with the Prime Minister and so on.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secretary_of_State_for_Communities_and_Local_Government

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Pickles

    Secretaries of State are not to be messed with. If he decides that central government will back local councils legally and financially on this issue - and that decision is clearly within his remit - then we've won.

    And another great example of how you don't have to be an epic hero or a martyr to keep things moving, especially with the momentum that has developed over the last 2 years against the CoS. Just keep pecking away at this already-strained edifice.

    Re: UK Government urges councils to stop giving tax breaks to scientology. WINRAR!!

    I think it would be a good thing to enlighten Mr. Pickles about Scientology's "charitable" contributions such as Applied Scholastics and Narconon.

    Thoughts have mass, niacin runs out radiation. Yeah, I want my kids to learn the droolings of a drugs-addled sci-fi hack. They claim what they offer is "educational." Technically it is teaching *something,* but none of it is of any worth.

    Now that organized Scientology is on the defensive in Australia, and getting some unwanted attention in the UK, they will start promoting their "charitable groups" harder, because it's all they got. Imagine if all those front groups were exposed as fraudulent, self-serving recruitment vehicles!

    "We get people off drugs!"
    (we take vulnerable junkies and turn them into Scientologists)

    "We fight illiteracy!"
    (we found out that a good way to get people to read Hubbard is to teach 'em to read it)

    These programs are touted as "free," but funding is actually regged out of members.

    Anyone who bothers to google any of these front groups would quickly find many reasons to oppose Scientology front groups in schools and communities. The charitable intent behind these fronts will be readily apparent.

    I'll start working on a document for the Charities Commission.

    dox please, showing Narconon as a Scientology subsidiary.

    I'm pretty sure I saw an org chart somewhere with a big arrow indicating flow of new members from Narconon to COSREC.

    Ideally need leaked Scientology docs, although docs from official sources (e.g. courts, government) also useful.

    with particular attention to the paras which judge the case on the probability of being sued by COSREC, rather than on the legal merits.

    Also may be worth pointing out the false statement ('the charity is an Australian charity') in

    There's a ton of stuff in the NarCONon Trois-Riviers threads to refute the "charitable" work claimed by NN. Whoever monitors frauds in the UK should probably be put in touch with their Canadian counterparts on that.
