I spent my Sunday at the UK’s fist Open Budget in Harrow in north west London seeing how things worked. Polly Billington of the BBC’s Today programme was there too and put together this really nice package about what happened.
I wish Matthew Parris (who speaks in the discussion after the package) had come along. His muddled garble of rentaquotes showed no understanding of what actually took place.
I’ll post more thoughts soon.
