Enemies of freedom

One of the most important campaigns being run by our union at the moment is against attempts to water down the Freedom of Information Act. More details from the Campaign for Freedom of Information here. Note too, that only one of the people who stood for either leader or deputy leader of the Labour party supports the early day motion opposing attempts to neuter the Act.

Meanwhile, today - a day and a bit into the fresh new era of "listening" and "being humbled" ushered in by Gordon Brown - MPs vote to exempt themselves from the already inadequate strictures of the FOI Act.

Here's a list of those MPs who voted this madness in. Apologies for the Mail link (I won't make a habit of it) but there's some people in there who really ought to know better.

Christ, I wish I'd thought of that.
