A worthy successor…

      They preach transparency for public money. They are not funded by public money, and therefore feel no need to say who funds them.

    The TPA should stick to its brief and must up its game with better research on tax issues.

    Some really sloppy stuff recently not to mention the silly diversion into HS2 land.

    Come on guys.. get a grip.

    This ought to be compulsory viewing for all public sector staff, particulary those in the NHS. A superbly concise lesson that is applicable to any business.
