Secrets and alibis

John O'Farrell Friday January 7, 2005 The Guardian, an amusing take on FOI:

"The new act is also a splendid new way to wind up a politician who might have annoyed you. Even a completely innocent minister might start to feel distinctly edgy when they learn someone keeps submitting written requests for the addresses of all motels he has visited after 11pm, plus details of his overseas bank accounts, and a list of mobile phone calls made in the area around Soho."
