Order of Objects

HL, you have to be rather more precise in your wording.

Registered charities do not have shareholders.

It is always a constant battle controlling people trying to take advantage of charities. The Commission is underfunded as are many public bodies. It might cost an awful lot more to achieve perfrection.

Which bit of this was imprecise?

While this does not actually specify that I wasn't thinking about a registered charity, I think it does suggest that.

I conceded the point that the Charity Commission is not a waste of space, but that does not mean that my faith in them is restored: I am wondering about other ways of doing things...

Perfection is not so hard: you just mould it out of raw fundament. Maintaining perfection is what is difficult...

I had to wonder, which is why I asked for clarity, particularly when the charity commission has no connection with unregistered charities save to the extent that companies claim to be such when they are not.

We are each of us free to perform an occasional charitable act without being jumped on by Charity commission. The whole point of this conversation, latterly, is that a registered charity can only have charitable objects (an explicit restriction).

I thought we only started talking about charities as an example of an explicit restriction, and how such restrictions might be enforced.
