    William Weir

    Written in 2009, it has dated a little at the time of writing but depressingly many of the observations are still relevant. The suggested remedies, however, are tainted by the dogma of the Taxpayers Alliance which feel rather old.

    Having read, and been very impressed by, David Craig's Plundering the Public Sector, I wondered, a little way into this, why Fleeced wasn't of the same quality. Then I realised that the co-author was Matthew Elliott, of the Taxpayers' Alliance. Perhaps this accounts for some of the biasses here. The TPA is not noted for its objectivity and transparency. In this book, there is a chunk about local councillors which is just plain wrong, and that made me concerned about how much else was inaccurate.
