This week Craig talks to Alastair Tibbit from Open Democracy about their latest report into the funding of think tanks across the UK and in the devolved nations. They discuss why it is important that think tanks declare the sources of their funding and why the public should be wary of those who do not. Common Weal is also proud to announce that we were awarded an A rating in their report, the highest possible rating.
