Other TaxPayers’ Alliance website to relaunch

After a long and very poorly timed break, I’m pleased to say the Other TaxPayers’ Alliance is back in action. A new-look website is on its way, and in the meantime I’ve contributed to Liberal Conspiracy’s debate on how best to fight the cuts.

This site’s unplanned absence (see below) is a reminder that we need to build a stronger and more effective infrastructure on the left - even if we lack the resources currently flooding into right-wing thinktanks and campaigns. Over the next few weeks I’ll be exploring ways of better working with other organisations to put this campaign on a more solid footing.

Please do send your thoughts, contributions and articles - and if you already blog elsewhere I’m always happy to cross-post.

On a personal note…

What was supposed to be short break (on account of the success of, unfortunately turned into longer break due to my daughter being diagnosed with a serious medical condition. If nothing else it has made me more grateful for the gleaming new children’s hospital - built under the last government - that treats her, and to the staff who work there. I’d especially like to thank all of the readers of this site who sent kind words.

I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter.  It’s awful when children are sick.  I hope that she makes a full and speedy recovery.

In this age of equality and anti discrimination laws, is their just me that thinks there is massive discrimination and inequality going on against millions of elderly people in this country.I refer to the fact that the majority of workers in this country have either never had a salary related pension,or like myself had one,only to see it closed and its promises destroyed. Bad luck some may say.And yet these same taxpayers,forced to work until 65 and longer, are then forced by law,to pay for the pensions of public sector workers ie police & firemen to name a few,who retire as early as 50 and are then free to get other jobs and still draw their pension.Where is the equality in that.Collectively we have the answer without leaving the house
