Thieving NCVO plagiarists

NCVO's Sheltering Commission has produced a report called Sheltering the Future about the role of umbrellas in the stormy years ahead. Which is exactly the same title as something we produced six years ago THE THIEVING BASTARDS. How dare a Commission about sheltering a) not be chaired or involve me b) produce a document about brollies in the future and use the generic words sheltering and future when naming its conclusions. There were many alternatives they could have gone for such as Seeking Asylum From the Rain in Years to Come or Being Protected in the Opposite of the Past but no, they deliberately copied our title.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, as they say when trying to avoid huge legal bills around copyright. But that won't wash, Hubert. You haven't heard the last of this. I will see you in court.
