In the light of our growing interest in the public funding – across the EU generally, and in the UK specifically – of social engineering programmes, and our plans to challenge the charitable status of politically-motivated militant feminist organisations including the Fawcett Society and the Women’s Resource Centre, I thought it timely to point the good visitors to this site in the direction of two strong reports written by Chris Snowden, who works for the leading London think-tank, the Institute of Economic Affairs (‘IEA’).
Chris was the author of The Spirit Level Delusion, an excellent response to a bestselling leftie book, The Spirit Level. The first of the following two reports was published by the IEA in June 2012, the second was published two days ago:
SOCK PUPPETS: How the government lobbies itself and why
EURO PUPPETS: The European Commission’s remaking of civil society
