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.
