Great find by
Dave Atherton Mark Wallace of The Taxpayers Alliance (see comment below and on the previous post).
It seems that Policy Exchange's Henry Featherstone, author of the report that calls for a five per cent increase in tobacco taxation, not only attended the ASH AGM on December 10, 2009, he even tweeted about it:
At ASH AGM last night. Smoking still bad for inequality ... something must be done ...
Well, well, well. (Click HERE for the evidence.)
The plot thickens.
PS. Henry doesn't tweet much. I don't think he'll be tweeting very often in the future either.
22:15 ... Policy Exchange still getting an sbsolute roasting on ConservativeHome. Good.
For some reason Featherstone has been allowed a second post on ConservativeHome, this time in response to Matthew Sinclair's post which was in reaction to Featherstone's first post.
Looks to me like he should stop digging. As one commenter says, "Give it a rest Featherstone you self righteous bore."
At the top table: Henry Featherstone, head of the Policy Exchange health unit; Deborah Arnott, chief executive of ASH; and Donald Reid, out going chair of the ASH Board of Trustees at ASH AGM at the Royal College of Physicians, December 10, 2009. I've seen more people at an old age pensioner's tea party. And they were a hell of a lot livelier!
