It is time for a Christmas break. Thanks to all followers and viewers who have read this blog over the past year.
Normal service will resume after Christmas with fresh investigations in the pipeline including one on a leading Labour councillor. There may also be further revelations about the life and wealth of Francis Maude as the government in the season of good cheer ratchets up its campaign to increase pension contributions from teachers, civil servants, firefighters,probation officers, health workers and local government staff while cutting their benefits.
Francis Maude is the first national figure subject to an armchair audit on this blog – part of the open society which he and David Cameron say they are keen to promote.
Also expect some suprising and fascinating revelations about Whitehall.
In the meantime have a good festive break while you can afford it.
