I came across this presentation on "Common Purpose", an organisation that I have never before heard of, but from what I can see, some light needs to be shone into this corner of the corporatist state. Browsing the net, I discovered Philip Davies, tory MP for Shipley, had tabled a number of written questions on how much money had the government ministries handed over to their chums in "Common Purpose", which turns out to be on average over £250K per year over the last five years (the period that was asked about). This only involved sixteen government departments, and doesn't cover all the manifold local authorities, commissions and quangos who have put money in this organisation's pockets - all at our expense. Time to start digging, I think.
