We have had active bodies prostituting themselves, such as the IEA, which at that time was chaired by Linda Whetstone, mother of Rachel, one time Uber executive. They made a video, staring young women, calling for even more deregulation, and consciously telling other young females to use Uber, even though they were totally aware of the statistics tegarding Uber driver rape and sexual assault.
They shamed themselves and betrayed their sisters for money.
And now it’s all going Pete Tong again for the IEA, as members start leaving over new revelations.
Is the train ride running out of gravy?If it's irrelevant, why is it such a big secret?

The IEA used the report to try to persuade a cabinet minister not to increase regulations on Jersey and Guernsey offshore financial centres, according to its director general Mark Littlewood.
Jersey Finance, which represents the island’s banking sector and is part-funded by the States of Jersey Government, funded a June 2018 report called "Offshore Bet: The benefits of capital mobility", that argued against increased regulation of offshore financial centres.
The IEA’s director general Mark Littlewood handed a copy of the ‘Offshore Bet’ report to an Unearthed undercover reporter during a meeting at the IEA’s offices last month and described how the report has been disseminated by the IEA:
"So we’re not lobbyists...we will tend to frame the argument and then say you know, so here is our paper on X and then we promulgate that argument endlessly and repetitively.
I think I’ve given you the paper on offshore tax havens that, will then frame every debate and discussion we go to, about why we shouldn’t be shutting down Jersey and Guernsey as offshore centres, how valuable they provides the ammunition."
"Some of it went straight to cabinet minister, if you can sit down with a cabinet minister and persuade him over the table to change policy immediately hoorah...but a lot of it is longer term informing Ads, getting it in the media you know, big article in the Daily Telegraph saying why don’t we do X."
Jersey Finance has been open about its support for the ‘Offshore Bet’ report. The IEA does not reveal its sources of funding as a matter of policy.
Molly Scott Cato, a Green Party MEP, told has publicly said: "It’s shocking that the IEA was given money to produce a report arguing in favour of tax havens by banks headquartered in tax havens. Such reports are cited in support of low-tax policies by many who fail to understand their true source."
