Earlier in the week, I reblogged a popular article in Russia’s Pravda newspaper, focusing on the deadly MERS-CoV virus. This prompted me to publish a second blog, using Storify to see what was trending; I was very surprised that the mainstream media were not focusing on the deadly MERS-CoV virus. Here is a third blog which reblogs a CNN article:

I am still concerned that the public are being kept in the dark on the deadly MERS-CoV virus and question whether the WHO is doing enough?

Any thoughts?

This morning I spotted that UK Chancellor, George Osborne was crowing about his record on tax evasion on his Twitter micro blog. This prompted me to use Storify to identify what was trending on George Osborne and tax evasion. Check it out below?

Looking at the Storify cited articles, there was not too much coverage from the mainstream media. Also there was not too much focus on the strategy, plan or potential windfall from tackling tax evasion.

This prompts me to offer a related open question:

Why are George Osborne and the HMRC not publishing a strategy, plan and quantifying the potential windfall from effectively tackling tax evasion of the wealthy and the multi-nationals?

Any thoughts?
