Conservatives Seek to 'Follow the Money'
At this evening's ConservativeHome Awards I sat next to George Osborne who was full of a new initiative being unveiled today. He will be announcing details of a new website today called Follow the Money, which will enable people to see just how the government is spending their money. At the moment the site is temporary and part of Conservatives.com but it is currently being developed along the lines of Expectmore.gov. The idea is to persuade the Government to start a similar website to enable greater public accountability. I suspect this will have to wait until Mr Osborne is in Number 11.
