While the news is dominated by Labour's transport spending cuts, Government U turn after U turn and Gordon Brown's inability to tell the truth, I'd like to highlight something else.
Last night I was at the CSJ's Awards. Awards dos can be very formulaic and dull but listening to the work that the voluntary sector does in tackling poverty, addiction and crime is something which deserves greater exposure.
The effort put in by organizations large and small genuinely saves lives and saves the tax payer £millions. I think that Ian Duncan-Smith, the SJ and all those people who work in the voluntary sector deserve a huge vote of thanks.
