Yes, you can now vote on the best way for the UK government to cut spending. It might take you a while: there were 44,000 suggestions and they have received only rudimentary classification.

  • “Stop civil servants wasting money on branding exercises”;
  • “Cut back on consultants”;
  • “Leave the EU”.
