Burning Our Money has a post on figures issued by HMG showing total waste in public services running at £75billion per annum.
BOM ends his post thus:
"Do we have a solution? Yes we do - radical decentralisation of our public finances, with local authorities made responsible for both running and funding our local public services."
And what has 'The Plan', authored by Hannan & Carswell, been suggesting? And what has this blog been 'pushing' at almost every opportunity? Yup - 'The Plan', involving real devolution of power and self-financing local authorities!
