We’ve decided where our Artful Dodger tax ads should go next

Last week we ran a poll to decide where our Artful Dodger tax ads go next. The most popular suggestion was to run them in national newspapers with over 12,000 of the 15,000 votes. The other two options with fewer votes were billboards and bus stops in cabinet members’ constituencies and local election hotspots.

Last time we ran our ads in the papers, we really upped the pressure on the government to tackle tax dodging. The ads were talked about in newspapers and on BBC and Sky breakfast TV. On Sky, our ads even put a minister on the spot when the presenter asked “why are you fiddling about with VAT when tax dodging costs us £120bn?”

What else could we do to up the pressure? If you have any ideas, please share them below:
