Just kidding

It's three years and four months since the charity Kids Company collapsed. It's a year since it was first reported that the Insolvency Service would be disqualifying the charity's directors. It's seven months since one of them, Sunetra Atkinson, accepted a two and a half year ban.

The Charity Commission, even under pocket battleship (and former Beeboid) Baroness Stowell, seems to be deferring to the Insolvency Service, and the Insolvency Service is taking an age to bring civil proceedings against the remaining seven directors and Camila Batmanghelidjh. The seven are being represented by Bates Wells Braithwaite; Ms Batmanghelidjh has the services of Gunnercooke.

Meanwhile Gina Miller has told the FT that she was ahead of the game in spotting problems at the charity: “I actually complained about Kids Company back in 2009 and I was told in no uncertain terms by senior members of the government that I was jealous of Camila".
