Do not blame you. The 5 month sentence (and he will serve less than 2) sounds outrageous. Lets hope someone appeals it.

Just seen from another source he may have made up to £300,000 out of conning people into thinking they were supporting a charity. I am now even angrier angry

I am slow to anger but have to admit I am seething at the moment.

I watched the very touching tribute to D. Day veterans and listened to their comments that yes they were afraid but it was their job so they got on and did it, then the first item on local BBC news was about a man who had set up fake collections for a childrens' cancer charity and pocketed over £150,000 - he was sentenced to just 5 months in prison!
