Blogger Richard Murphy makes history

"This is Richard Murphy with the G20 Voice bloggers . . . "

With these words Richard made history on April 2, becoming the first blogger ever to ask a question of a world leader at a global summit.

Murphy is an expert in "offshore tax havens." In an article posted shortly after the London summit at Tax Research UK Murphy wrote:
. . . if the political climate has changed, and it appears it has, then that process of closing tax havens can be completed. And today is probably the first time that could be said.
From the floor of the press conference room I filmed Gordon Brown's answer to Murphy's historic question which concerns an issue that cuts right to the heart of the world financial crisis.
