Glasgow - FOI Week



I have decided to focus on Freedom of Information (FOI) on the blog site this week to highlight the hypocrisy of Glasgow City Council proclaiming the need for 'openness and transparency' in its decision making - while the council's senior officials block the release of information which would explain their role in Glasgow's WPBR pay scheme which has been condemned as 'unfit for purpose' by Scotland's highest civil court, the Court of Session. 

The 'fun' will start tomorrow and homely lots of readers will raise this issue with their political representatives - local councillors, MSPs and MPs - because the council's behaviour is a disgrace if you ask me.

And over the next few weeks I'll be working as hard as I can to ensure that the senior officials responsible meet their 'Waterloo'.
