The recent failure and accusations against the British charity, Kids Company points to a cautionary tale for political advisors to put principles before personalities.
"Ministers should never have ignored civil servants and handed over £3m to Kids Company just before it failed, Bernard Jenkin, the chairman of the public administration committee has said.
"Jenkin said Kids Company had become too politicised and ministers “should not have been anywhere near the decision” to prop the charity up with public money."--Sandra Laville, Patrick Butler and Rowena Mason, The Guardian
