[livejournal.com profile] miss_corinne's got a new post up at Simply Understand - she's translated the current government consultation on Protecting Crowded Places from terrorist attack into plain English.

I thought this one in particular might be of interest to my civil-liberties-campaigner friends. This might be a consultation you want to respond to or direct your readers, if you blog, to pay attention to. Also, Simply Understand is a great site and you should read it. :)

I'd read it if it didn't require Flash (proprietary software available only for a few browsers on a few platforms) to read plain text (just about the most open format there is)!

Looks to me like it's a pretty PDF thingy inside flash. So the PDF would be more handy if not the plain text. There is some irony here...

I haven't got a proper way to host the PDFs yet, blogger's rather rubbish for useful things like that! I'm looking at some solutions, though, and in the meantime the PDF for the latest two should be (vaguely) easy to access :)

Do you just need a web bucket to put things in?

That's a wonderful thing. I thought it might be a rather ironic transcription of "What they're really saying", but, no, it's a neat Plain English translation. Lovely.
