Caught in their own trap

I love a bit of irony, me...

This is not what Jack Straw had in mind at all, oh no. The Freedom of information legislation was supposed to be used to embarass wealthy Tory donors and so cripple the Tory party's finances. It was not supposed to be used to find out what MPs were up to. 

We can be sure that the disc theTelegruph got its mitts on would not have existed, but for the FoI act.  Also well done to Heather Brook; as she said on R4 today: "this feels like victory"


  1. Bad editing Mark. Sharpen up and pay back any expenses!

  2. Aha! You both fell into my pedant trap.
