Public service oddities: Accounts Owl edition

I really don't think that council accounts are read by anyone who doesn't have some fixed, and normally quite dull, purpose in mind. Despite that Shropshire County Council have clearly decided they need to make their accounts (PDF) more accessible, more user friendly. How? With an owl and what I think is a weasel discussing them.




Brilliant.

I have no idea if this would be available online, but when I was in one of those EU Information Shops in Berlin last year among their many booklets and information packets there was a comic book. Well, a graphic novel, really... about the bureaucracy involved in a particular environmental regulation. They had seriously put together a whole comic book story about a VERY DRAMATIC environmental incident and took you all the way through the offices that would handle it, complete with footnotes about the exact regulations.

The scheme features the redevelopment of an existing office building led by architecture firm, Sheppard Robson. This will see the internal configuration of the office space completely overhauled to rationalise it and increase the efficiency of the building, allowing it to be used profitably as a multi-tenanted property. On the ground floor, greeting visitors to the 6,000 square metres of grade-A office space above will be a new reception.

On the first day of his visit the pontiff spoke of avoiding "exacerbated and useless nationalism or tribalism" which he said could fuel deadly inter-religious tensions.
