Most of us have heard the term think tank and have an idea of what they are meant to do. But many are surprised at the links they have and how secretive some of them appear to be in relation to their funding.
It matters not the political hue of the think tank there is clearly a need for think tanks to be fully open, transparent about their funding AND their links to politicians AND their links to political parties AND their links to those in the media AND their links to any private firm which will in any way be involved in matters from which they pontificate in a “think tank” capacity.
You may think I have just gone off on one. But then again when you’ve read the following links you may share my concerns. Have a look and then let me know.
