Charities and their good works – a final statement

So it seems that I am not going to be able to discuss specifics about Jim Thomson’s work at Depression Alliance with him.

We now have his final statement on all related matters which can be read over at Seroxat Sufferers, along with details of some of the conversations between Jim and Bob Fiddaman.

Jim’s statement ends:
“I wish the readers of this blog nothing but the best – and in particular I wish you all good health. Above all, I ask you all to do this one thing. When you see or hear anything in this context, ask yourself one question…”What does this person, or this organisation, have to gain from taking this position?” All may become marginally clearer. Jim”.

All I can do is to echo Jim’s words and support this particular sentiment – “…ask yourself one question… What does this person, or this organisation, have to gain from taking this position?”

Ironically, that was how all this started for me – charities-web.pdf

However, for things to become REALLY clear, I think you must also ask “and who funds this person or organisation?”

    Hey,

    Well, I think rather than just ask oneself that question, and then speculate pointlessly, it’s much easier to ask the person/organization concerned, and then operate on that basis. If they’re talking shite, it’ll become apparent, soon enough.

    Best regards

    Matt
