The Devil in the Details

The Independent reports on a controversial use for some UK National Lottery money.

More than £350,000 of National Lottery money has been awarded to a project that gives advice to prostitutes.

 

The award of £359,291 to the UK Network of Sex Work Projects has been approved by the Big Lottery Fund (BLF), which was set up last year as a new channel of cash to good causes. Organisers of the network said the money would be spent on advising male and female sex workers on their safety, welfare, health and legal rights. Prostitutes who want to get off the streets will be given help, and a directory of support services will be published. The award will also enable the network to employ full-time staff and set up best practice guidelines.

 

The grant will reignite criticism of the way in which lottery cash is allocated, just months after a massive overhaul of the system to regain public support. Jacqui Lait, a shadow home affairs minister, said: “The awarding of controversial grants like these has undermined public confidence that lottery money goes to genuinely good causes… We want to restore the funding to the four good causes that were supported by the lottery under the Conservatives – Sport, Charities, Arts and Heritage.”

This is how the story is displayed on the very Christian WorldNetDaily:

 

 

Coincidence? Or is WorldNetDaily implying something?
