Media coverage from our court hearing yesterday
Yesterday our case against HMRC’s sweetheart deal was heard at the High Court, where evidence was revealed showing that Goldman Sachs was let off millions of pounds of tax rightfully owed to the public purse to avoid ‘major embarrassment’ for George Osborne.
Here are our highlights of the coverage in the media:
