Taxpayers' Alliance - director does not pay British tax

The Taxpayers' Alliance has become a growing presence in political debates calling on less government spending and smaller government more generally, as a self-appointed advocate for taxpayers.

So now enter the bombshell that one of its director does not, in fact, pay British tax as reported in The Guardian here. To paraphrase Labour MP Jon Cruddas, we might expect directors of a group representing the interest of British taxpayers to be British taxpayers, too. The fact that this is untrue may be a cause for concern.

That "bombshell" story you linked to dates from 2009. I was going to tweet it until I checked that out.
