I immediately sent an email (and link) to my three local councilors
asking them to do likewise and save money locally by calling for
greater use of open standards and open source software.

Just received a reply - a positive one

'Thank you for your e-mail, and this interesting information.
I am happy to raise this matter with the Council. We are always
looking for efficiencies, particularly in these times.'

Every little helps, as they say.
