This is going to be huge

The UK Conservative Party has promised to

Publish every item of local and government and quango expenditure over £25,000, plus every project that receives EU funds

a Tory spokesman confirmed to me earlier today: "We will publish Coins [the Treasury’s Combined Online Information System] straight away if we get into government."

I’m almost tempted to vote Conservative. Only kidding. I’m probably not going to vote in any case. But this is absolutely revolutionary. This is going to change everything. It will make the MP expenses scandal seem like nothing.

How much of DFID spending will be on this thing?

Won't this just change government incentives to subdivide sensitive expenditure in £25,000 blocks?
