I have COPD, I live in a 2 bed housing association bungalow, I have a 21 year old car that I struggle to keep on the road, I am struggling for money week to week and it would seem due to there being no cure I am going to die. These are facts, now money is short for research and a cure might be some way off (if ever) but as the BLF is a charity and they raise funds to try to help us poor people I do find it hard to stomach when I read from the BLF site that the top fat cats in BLF get paid a lot of money, I mean a lot !!!!!! Who wouldn't want to work for a charity when your wages are going to be over £90,000 a year ? and it's not just the top boss man either.
This is from the books of the BLF for 2012/2013
8. Staff costs and numbers
Staff costs were as follows:
Salaries and wages 3,010,935 2,551,725
Social security costs 285,674 266,285
Pension contributions 104,581 130,511
Two employees earned between £60,000 - £70,000 (2012: Nil)
One employee earned between £70,001 - £80,000 (2012: Three)

No 2 bed bungalow or 21 year old car there then !!!!!!!!!!!!!
