NO freedom of information bill for Scotland
There were many fine words from Tony Blair about how much freedom of information
Scotland would enjoy after his glorious party took control of Scotlands pseudo-parliament.
Instead we see the Scottish 'first minister' (McLeish just now) can veto the
release of ANY document that may be against the 'national interest' - is that
Scottish interests or "UK" interests i.e. England?
Blair has manipulated information this already.
Given Blair also controls the 'information economy' via the Scotland 1998 act, we have
NO freedom of information at all.
