Tackling the Taxpayer’s Alliance

Posted on

I have had a great email from a person who reads this blog, who said:

i mentioned to you that I am concerned that the BBC frequently uses interviews with representatives of The Tax Payers Alliance without indicating whose views they represent.  I am in favour of putting forward various viewpoints but I like to have some idea of who is funding organisations and what their purpose might be.  When I see or hear such an interview, I often ring the BBC asking if they could indicate who funds The Tax Payers Alliance and who they represent.  Listeners comments are logged and passed to the programme makers/editors.  The number to ring is 03700 100 2222.

Alternatively (I have not done this) I understand it is possible to leave a message on the BBC message board which can be found at http://www.bbc.co.uk/messageboards/newguide/messageboards_a-z.shtml.

Give it a go! Let’s challenge them time and time again.

There is no doubt that the Taxpayer’s Alliance does not represent taxpayers — so why does the BBC give them airspace?

Thanks for reading this post.
