Spending Transparency

A government is employed by the electorate, in which case the electorate should know what business is being conducted and how taxpayer money is being spent. One of the biggest components of this is spending transparency but there should also be transparency in how the government operates and how decisions are made. The government should also present their information in a way that is clear and easy to understand instead of concealing the issue behind difficult language and layers of terminology.

Many of our campaigns are centred around this issue and we have had many successes so far, including increasing transparency in council meetings and pushing for publication of MPs expenses into a single database.
