So as I said I was invited to be on a panel with Ritchie and Prem Sikka on the subject of tax justice. I said yes, why not, should be fun. And so I was duly invited.
Just got the email disinviting me. Apparently some of the organisers of the conference did not think that my views would add much light to anything, only a certain amount of heat.
So, better cancel those supporters’ buses I hired to bring in the righteous to confer with the bien pensants then, eh?
” the concern was not at all about you personally; it was about the explosive chemistry which might have resulted from having you on a panel with Richard and Prem”
