Conduct Your Own UK Spending Review with Guardian Web App

This is awesome.

Cleaning up after 13 years of mis-management by the Labour government was always going to be tricky. Nobody envies George Osborne's task, but it just got a little easier thanks to an innovative and interactive infographic from the Guardian.

By the way, I just knocked off £50bn from the budget just by removing the subsidies to Scotland and Wales. That's before I started on tax credits, defence, health and local government....! Easy really.

Unfortunately you can't increase the budgets for investing in industry, research or science which is disappointing.

Head on over and give it a go.
