23 more councils join spending transparency revolution

As reported here the DCLG listed 26 councils which have opened their books and published payments too suppliers of over £500. (Barnet, Bedford, Blaby, Bromley, Corby, Fareham, Guildford, Hammersmith and Fulham, Hastings, Islington, King's Lynn and West Norfolk, Leicestershire, Mid Sussex, Northamptonshire, Oxford, Richmond upon Thames, Slough, South Gloucestershire, South Oxfordshire, Spelthorne, Surrey, Uttlesford, Vale of White Horse, Waverley, West Sussex and Windsor and Maidenhead.)

Then I also reported 11 more here. (Wandsworth, Trafford, Elmbridge, Kensington and Chelsea, Woking, Surrey Heath, Welwyn Hatfield, Wirral, Devon, Staffordshire Moorlands, Broxbourne.)

Of course Boris is in a class on his own on City Hall spending transparency.

Now The Guardian has done a list and they have spottted another 23:

1. Bassetlaw.

2. Broxtowe.

3. East Herts.

4. East Staffordshire.

5. Hambleton.

6. Harlow.

7. Hillingdon.

8. Lewes.

9. Malvern Hills

10. Mole Valley.

11. North Somerset.

12.  Preston.

13. Purbeck.

14. Reigate and Banstead.

15. Richmondshire.

16. St Albans.

17. Three Rivers.

18. Tonbridge and Malling.

19. Walsall.

20. Waltham Forest.

21. West Dorset.

22. Wigan.

23. Worcestershire.

So I make 61 altogether (including the GLA.)

How long before we get to 100?
