Ministers are pressing ahead with plans to limit the Freedom of Information Act
Right. And why are you doing that?
The government has said the changes could save £5m of taxpayers' money.
Oh, so the government are getting concerned about tax payers now, are they? Funny that, considering they've spent the last decade trying to get every possible fucking penny off us, even to the extent that if they tried to tax me on the coins down the back of my sofa, I would not be in the least bit fucking surprised.
The government currently only answers requests which cost less than £600 to research, but the new plans will include the staff costs.
Hold on a minute, don't we pay their wages in our taxes? Aren't they 'civil' servants? Surely if we want an answer to a question which will inform us how our government is functioning (and I use that in the loosest sense of the term)then that is a good way of spending public money? Much better than giving £873 a year for every man, woman and child to the EU, anyway.
Mind you, even in the European Parliament, Commissioners have to answer questions from MEPs, have a time limit by which they must answer the question, and if they don't then the question is referred to a parliamentary committee and the Commissioner gets into lots of trouble.
The EU having a better system of questioning than Westminster? And people still support this Labour government?
What are the options, though? David Cameron planning on saving the country through a series of healthy recipes for all the family using a magical combination of broccoli and cabbage?
Sack the fucking lot, that's what I say.
