- Two Doctors is frustrated at the SSP (in Edinburgh) and Respect (in Manchester) both opposing congestion charging.
- Caroline Lucas reports that MEPs have voted to support a ban on cluster munitions.
- The One Show's blog on consumer affairs examines the Warm Front grant scheme. One of the comments after the piece reads:
"I work as a Housing Inspector in the Local Authority and have dealt with dozens of clients who have applied for a warm front grant. My experience has been ,almost without exception, that the cost of the work through Warmfront is over inflated. Quotes for the work through local contractors consistently comes in at a THIRD TO HALF less expensive. Most of the people who contact me are pensioners who cannot afford to pay a large amount of money in order to get the work done and consequently end up remaining in cold houses. I am so pleased you have highlighted this issue on the One show, it is a NATIONAL SCANDAL."
