The People's Budget
Last year we on the island with thanks to Paul Williams (aka The Druid) had the People's Manifesto. This year my attention had been drawn by a commentator to the People's Budget.
Billions of pounds of our money is being used by public bodies without any involvement of local people. The People’s Budget is a campaign to help your community group understand how to persuade your local council, health organisation, police force or housing provider to give you a significant say in how budgets should be spent.
Seems a good idea to me.
But why don't you make your own mind up by visiting the website http://www.thepeoplesbudget.org.uk/
