Dodging the issues. Again!

Yet again the Tax Dodgers alliance has misrepresented the true position on the future funding of public sector pensions by presenting as fact their own flawed assumptions on the LGPS.

The LGA has set the record straight, which is welcomed, but far too often this bunch of hypocritical miscreants are able to seduce the press into reporting as fact their own politicised fiction. Still should we forgive them as it was only a calculation out by about £4 billion? That’s small beer compared to the £90 billion diddled from the Treasury coffers by tax ‘avoiders’ who funnily enough they rarely mention.
