Anybody still following news here because of the Panama corporate database might like to know about a new site indexing UK company records, including names of their directors. The people behind it explain:
we bought the Companies House appointment snapshot and dropped it into a quick little searchable symfony app so you can browse the data – it’s the directors and secretaries of every UK company, cross-linked. Quite handy for looking up your PPCs, ex-MPs, etc. Also handy (if you’re a childish prat like me) for looking up funny names (see if you can beat Minge Fan, or Arse Plems Kyentu).
