It is sad but instructive that it is not the government but the IEA that is leading a new campaign against fake charities - a genre of tax consumption first brought to prominence by Chris Mounsey on his DK blog.
Whitehall and Westminster still find these abominations too convenient. The contrived 'pressure' brought by fake campaign groups actually funded by the departments they pretend to lobby too frequently leads to ill considered and poorly supported legislation that happens to fit with the narrow obsessions of a particular minister or mandarin.
The Fake Charities were an easy win for Cameron in 2010; four years on and he's done nothing. Yet again, it will be public pressure bearing directly on MPs that will be the impetus for change.
