I've been out most of the day (playing only my third golf round of the year, since you ask) so am only just catching up with the Charity Commission Report on the Smith Institute. Much coment seems to revolve around the fact that Gordon Brown refused to cooperate with the inquiry and didn't even answer their letters. Tory charities spokesman Greg Clark said: “Given that the criticism of the Smith Institute centred on its relationship with Gordon Brown, it is shocking that Brown refused to respond to any correspondence from the Charity Commission during their inquiry.” I am shocked that he is shocked. It's exactly what I would have expected. What an example to set others who are asked to co-operate with official inquiries.
UPDATE: More analysis from Guido HERE. Incredibly left wing blogs are trying to claim that the Smith Institute has been totally vindicated by the Charity Commission report. Delusional.
