(Website: Policy Exchange)
“As an educational charity our mission is to develop and promote new policy ideas which deliver better public services, a stronger society and a more dynamic economy.”
A cumbersome leviathan, Policy Exchange is in a symbiotic duonistic partnership with almost all of the government departments including ministers and senior civil servants. Politicians and civil servants contribute to its publications and its output is used by them as back-up to their views and proposals. It exists simultaneously as an enormous vessel of all the known right-of-centre viewpoints on everything while being used, as is always the case with these right-wing con-tanks, as a pretend independent voice.
“Educational charity” is a bizarre and offensively dishonest description.
