News reaches me that the Charity Commission, the body that regulates standards in the voluntary sector, is considering a complaint made against independent candidate for Luton South Esther Rantzen.
Apparently Esther has a personal assistant who is part funded by the children’s charity NSPCC. The complaint concerns the possibility that if the PA has worked on Esther’s election campaign, rules regarding the involvement of charities in political campaigning may have been broken.
