Don't heard it here first!

Good to see The Guardian picking up on a theme developed by me - having a go at our old friends The Taxpayers Alliance.

Among the things they have discovered is that one of the TPA's directors lives abroad and has not paid tax in this country for years. The article established that, far from being a pressure group funded by ordinary taxpayers (as they would have us believe), they are in fact funded by some extremely wealthy backers and effectively act as a Tory front.

Let's hope journalists now stop quoting them as the authentic voice of the taxpayer and recognise them as the right-wing rentaquotes they are.

By the way, if you want an antidote to the TPA's propaganda, try this.
