The author comments on Great Britain Charity Commission wasting donations for charities. The author says that there is a testimony to the Public Accounts Committee on the Cup Trust debacle, calling it a disaster for charities. She states that the Commission must be squeezing on over-hyped press reports on the salaries of the charity chief executives through explaining that most charities do not have chief executives. She adds that the Commission is there to support the public.
