"From a plain English point of view, it is an awful document"

Protocol dictates that I remove the post that was here until Wednesday 3rd.

We sought the opinion of the Plain English Campaign about the latest Future Shape report, and they have to give Barnet council a chance to explain themselves before we are allowed to publicise their opinion about the document.

My feeling is that Barnet council will say, oh, well, that document was never meant for public consumption (far too 'technical'!?), in which case why put it on your website? But at least it means they will then be more or less committing themselves to producing some Plain English information about Future Shape. So... watch this space.
