Comic Relief accused of investing in tobacco, alcohol and arms firms

 

 

 

Red Nose Day



Comic relief is a good cause but many contributors to the charity will be appalled that their donations go to arms dealers,tobacco companies and alcohol manufactures. It may well be that  these investments "were made based on legal guidelines which state they must yield the best possible financial return.", but it seems tasteless to have companies benefiting from problems which, in many cases they themselves have created.
