Hello Why does BBC news still use the Taxpayers Alliance? They should be described on-air as a right-wing pressure group
Makes a change from the usual left-wing pressure groups generally used by the BBC
and why do PolicyExchange get so much media coverage when they wont disclose how they are funded
why is an organisation that holds the government to account and ensures the govt gets value for money right wing?

Because them and Migration Watch are the only pressure groups or political groups the public empathtise with.
they should be described on air as swivel eyed chinless wonders!
Specifically an Atlantic Bridge and neo-con funded right wing pressure group with ties to Tory party donors.
Fax Vegas, Yorkshire, UK
surely then should be described as a left wing pressure group.
the issue is what right to they have to make their comments, they're unelected, unrepresentative and how can they be deposed ?
It's worth noting that complaints hve been made to the Charities Commission about their political activity.

Big Q 4me is, who says they represent tax payers? I'm a tax payer but haven't voted4them or agreed with anything they've said!
The TaxPayers (sic) Alliance are an astroturf front group. Astroturf groups do not have any grass roots...
For the same reason they interview your union cronies?
Too true. They're used as if an impartial commentator rather than pressure group with fixed agenda
Oh really. Which ones would they be?
Fed up with TPA trying to divide society into 'taypayers' and 'others' - we ALL pay tax in some form, even benefits claimants!
