Quote of the day - on being "anti-business"

This quote is admittedly from one of our indefatigable Senior Advisers - but still, it's a good one. In The Guardian, in the context of talk from politicians in the UK who are arguing that if you are against the City of London's ability to pursue business as usual, you are somehow 'anti-business.'
"Those campaigners like the Tax Justice Network – who believe that being pro-business means being pro-transparency and accountability, being pro-everyone paying their tax and being anti-market abuse measures like tax havens and opacity – will continue to pursue their arguments. Because they're the real pro-wealth creators and real pro-free marketeers, when free means people have the information they need to make proper decisions freely available to them."
- Richard Murphy
