Another tale of waste

A very interesting piece on Radio 4’s File on Four last night.  It discussed the failure to properly account for EU and UK regeneration funds distributed to the English Regions.  From my own experience, this rings true.  The diversion of dfunds to local pet projects or the failure to properly account for monies is endemic in the UK.  We do like to think we know how to do public administration better than the rest but, in practice, we exhibit many of the behaviours we deplore in others.

You can listen again at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/mainframe.shtml?http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio4_aod.shtml?radio4/fileon4

The transcript of the programme will appear on the website in about two weeks time.
