Information is a non-event under current Australian governments

This wonderful man and the organisation he heads are being wiped out by the Revolting Rabbit plague of mass destruction of everything that is good for democracy, openness and accountability. Whitlam would have wept – and probably did because he’d have known months ago what I only found out today. It was a big breakthrough when the Information commissioner position was created. And now it’s gone and any hope of transparency under this government with it – along with journo’s ability to reveal the truth and our ability as individuals to lead lives free of surveillance and secret shafting.
