Weasels are trying to escape scrutiny again!

Apparently the bill to exclude Parliament from the Freedom of Information act has been revived as there are no other private members bills to be heard this Friday.

I wrote this on the subject before. The excuse is that they want to protect constituents private information. This is of course rubbish as that information is protected by the Freedom of Information act itself as well as the Data protection act. There is only one motive, to hide information that should rightly be in the public domain.

You can sign the petition against it here.

The BBC has this.

Hat tip to Lennon who posted the news on the politicalbetting.com website.
