If there is one thing that will always be the case no matter what period in history you might be living in, it’s the idea that the government will never pass up a chance to waste money on something that had nothing to do with the reason why they were given the money.
For example, you hear all the time about money being appropriated for one purpose, and then the next thing you know, you have people dipping their hands into the fund to use it for something else.
Now, this is one of those times where I wish the money was being spent on a fancy dinner because at least I could read this story in a church parking lot and not feel like I was about to explode.
I don’t think there’s any reason to mince words here: if I was a British subject I have to say I would be very upset right now. Apparently, the UK government is preparing to invest 170,000 pounds into a company called “Killing Kittens”, which essentially hosts orgies for the rich and famous in cities all over the world such as London, Paris, New York, Sydney, and Venice.
Apparently, this elite sex parties firm is currently valued at over 11 million pounds and it was founded by British entrepreneur Emma Sayle in 2005. It recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on an investment platform called Seedrs, and it raised 170,000 pounds.
Yes, the British government is going to match this, and not only that but they are going to procure the funds from their Coronavirus Future Fund account. Thus, total funding for this escapade is going to reach an appalling 340,000 pounds. But hey, even when your citizens are dying of this mystery virus, your leaders, billionaires, and CEOs still have needs, right?
This story was first broke by CNBC, and Sayle told the news firm via email that they were “still awaiting funds, but I’m proud to say that the Future Funds has conditionally approved our application.” Once the deal is completed, the British taxpayer is going to hold a stake of at least 1.47 percent.
Needless to say, the company has some interesting ways to describe themselves. They say on their website that they provide “a platform that keeps women first” and that they will host parties that will help the women “encourage, build confidence, liberate, and allow experimentation,” and that there is also a “guarantee” that this is a “unique experience unlike anything else you have had.”
