Is £500 a Lot of Money?

The BBC has reported that the  Department for Communities and Local Government is publishing all spending over £500.  It states that last year the department spent £310k on catering.

That sounds like a big number until you look at the graph that is also published.

Personally I would be a little more worried about the £55 million they spent on “Managed/Outsourced” services than the revelation that they spent £5k on blue tack.

Big Government costs big money, a sense of perspective is all important.

I guess they also spent £100k counting and publishing everything that cost more then £500.
