Audit Commission replies to Pickles's plan.

David Walker, journalist and former communication director of the Audit Commission tweeted today (@exauditor77): "Polite language, but Audit Comm is now saying Pickles' plan will ADD expense, leave public finances unguarded". I'm sure it will, too, in the longer term. Let's face it, it would be a remarkable fluke if an off the cuff policy decision was actually a good decision.
