Re: Why I don't donate to big charities

"There are something like 250,000 registered charities in the UK, all no doubt doing equally good work for their own good causes."

Most private schools in the UK are charities, as that allows them to be VAT exempt. I'm not sure what good work they might be doing, other than maybe giving a few bright-but-poor kids an education.
