Here's an interesting thing. Since the League Against Cruel Sports is registered as a 'charity' (bit of a joke that, but stick with this) they have to publish their accounts. So you can go to this page on the Charity Commission website and see what income and expenditure they're owning up to.
What immediately struck me was that almost exactly half their expenditure goes on 'generating voluntary income' and 'governance'. So anyone foolhardy enough to give them a couple of quid can be sure that a big chunk of that will be blown on chasing more donations. Then there's the mysterious £675,000 'retained', presumably for a rainy day.
This page suggests that their income rocketed by a factor of 10 in 2007. Follow this link and you'll get a pdf which shows more detail. Including the fact that "The annual emoluments of one employee exceeded £60,000." I'm sure he was worth every penny!
I'm no expert on these matters, so perhaps a reader can shed more light on what all these figures mean. What I find sad is that, spent wisely, £1.7m could have made a real difference to animal welfare and the environment.
