Sinister Nexus of ‘Eurosceptic’ Think Tank Staff (Who Actually Back Remain)

iea indy 2

“Exposed”, screamed the Indy’s front page last Thursday, dramatically claiming the Institute for Economic Affairs is part of a sinister axis of think tanks conspiring to help the Vote Leave campaign. The spirited piece told of a revolving door culture and an ominous-sounding nexus of right-of-centre organisations whose staff, board members and even offices are linked”, with the IEA at the centre. All good fun, but does it ring true?

In response, the IEA polled their staff to find out if they are indeed a conspiratorial bunch of secret Eurosceptics. It transpires that 37.5% of IEA employees actually support Remain, and another 12.5% are undecided. The IEA confirm they have

“no corporate position on whether Britain should stay in the European Union and a wide range of views are held by the Institute’s staff, trustees and wider supporters”

Hope the Indy’s track-record of rigorous investigative journalism continues in its online offering…
