Happy Saint George's Day

... for England must be worth a lot, because it costs a lot. Its government told us so yesterday in the Budget.
And did any of you get a bud yesterday? One single bud? Anyone? Me, neither.

This is my sheepish return to duty at Citizens and Neighbours.
Apologies to anyone out there who had had higher hopes of this that I've eared recently.
Blogwise I've been selfish - letting off too much steam at the ranting site and so nothing's got done here at CAN. Let me start to fix it, a bit.

So what's new?

Sue recommends that we go for this Big Brother and Freedom of Speech petition:

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to stop the proposed legislation requiring Facebook to monitor users' contacts."

Raedwald wants us to stick our necks out and our noses into this consultation:
This consultation covers proposals to amend...the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2003 to extend the requirement on public bodies when producing their statement of accounts to include additional information about the remuneration of senior officer. It seeks views on:
A proposed level of disclosure for senior officers in terms of salary, bonuses, additional payments, benefits in kind, compensation/ex-gratia payments, and pension entitlements.
A definition of 'senior'.
A proposed change to the way staff earning over £50,000 is reported, breaking this down into £5,000 bandings in place of the existing £10,000 banding.

Get those fat cats of the trough, or something - and we've got to 22 June 2009 to create a stink.

And The UK Libertarian Party wants us to send the shirt off our backs to Ten Downing Street with a commentary on the latest Budget. And here's the Facebook page, courtesy of Old Holborn.
