“Tax Justice” can not be serious

TJN gets funding from the Rowntree Foundation. Look where Rowntree’s money comes from! The funny thing is that TJN and its chief brain Richard Murphy have been having a go at some of the firms on the list. If they put forward a proposal that seriously addressed the problem they claimed to be concerned about, they could wake up next morning to find their supply of funds had been cut off. They would quickly be silenced as well. As is no secret, Murphy also advises the union that represents the civil servants who run the present tax system. They would soon ditch him he started to advocate a policy that got rid of their jobs.

In the meantime TJN and Murphy, whether deliberately or not, are doing a fine job in distracting attention from the one policy that would address their purported concerns. The concern industry is part of the problem.
