This morning my concern is more general. It is that right now I am invited to such a conference when there is obvious doubt about whether such invitations will be offered in the future.
And there is my doubt as to whether the UK can really tackle these issues alone when the EU has, for all its faults, been an overall effective agent in the fight against tax abuse.
Most worrying is the fact that this invitation came to me through City, University of London, and UK universities are already realising that they are being dropped from all new EU based projects: those I am now starting are amongst the last we might enjoy and there is not a hint of alternative funding coming from the UK government right now.
Brexit is a disaster because Ritchie won’t get grants.
