Edit note

I removed the following par, which was posted by User:Know1, as it really belongs on the Blundell page -- and the statement that simply because Blundell is involved in a group that is is therefore a front group for Koch is rather hyperbolic.--Bob Burton 07:48, 2 September 2009 (EDT)

"A Kochtopus front group can be identified if it has John Blundell in it. CF&P's at-a-glance page lists Blundell as Director. His website bio is a map of a large number of tentacles of the Kochtopus. From 1982 to 1993 he lived in the US where he was, inter alia, president of the Institute for Humane Studies (1988–91); president of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation (1987–91); president of the board of the Congressional Schools of Virginia (1988–92); and president of the Charles G. Koch and Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundations (1991–92). He assumed his duties as general director of the Institute of Economic Affairs on 1 January 1993. He also served as co-founder and chairman, from 1993 to 1997, of the Institute for Children, Boston, MA; founder director (1991–3), Institute for Justice, Washington DC; international trustee (1988–93), The Fraser Institute, Vancouver, BC; and founder trustee of Buckeye Institute, Dayton, OH. He is a director of Fairbridge and of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation (UK) and chairman of the executive committee of the board of Atlas Economic Research Foundation (USA). He is also a board member of the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA; of the Institute of Economic Studies (Europe) in Paris, France; and a former Board member of the Mont Pélerin Society.
