Treasury Crowd Sourcing Budget

We are told that the Treasury is going to release a document later today designed to produce a “fundamental re-evaluation of the role of government”.

It will ask people to discuss whether the government needs to provide certain public services at all and whether someone else such as councils, voluntary organisations or companies, could do so more cheaply.

There are a lot of things the government does, supposedly on public health grounds, that are massively unpopular:- raising booze taxes such that a pint costs £5 of taxed income and the brewer is lucky to see a pound.  Guido thinks adults should make their own health choices. My guess is that they will ignore the the sound of the crowd, nevertheless, shall we give it a try?
