The Unspoken Constitution

Over at the Democratic Audit website you can download the new pamphlet The Unspoken Constitution. In best Yes, Minister style, it reveals how government really works:
7.9. There shall be freedom of information, except that in the interests of executive power the legislation governing access to official information shall systematically protect from disclosure information pertaining to all matters of national security, internal policymaking, international relations and other sensitive or potentially embarrassing information.
One of the pamphlet's authors, Stuart Wilks-Heeg, has an article about it on Comment is Free today.

Three wins today: private arrangements for looking after children no longer subject to jobsworth attention, the nurse who whistleblowed abuse of patients reinstated, Damien Green's arrest wrong. And MPs told to be contrite and pay up. Fairness and community rules!
