Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.
Signed, Liam Byrne

@ Demos today.

Mrs Rigby notes that David Cameron, Frank Field and Camila Batmanghelidjh (founder of Kidsco) shared a platform at Demos today, launching "Commission on Character" or "The Character Enquiry" (name depends on source)

Mr Field discusses this on his site here (Good Character), with further comment here (Demos launch its Commission on Character) (the link on Frank's site from within the former item to the latter is broken)

The Times carries a news item here and the BBC here. There is also a report in Tory Diary.

I think all these things are worth reading, which is why I've put them together - it'll take quite a bit more than five minutes of your time.

I'm not going to make any comment about either the project or the people involved. I am, however, intrigued to see how this will pan out over coming days and weeks and wonder if there will be a backlash of some sort for this overtly public co-operation?
