Dear Mr Bradshaw MP

According to the Chancellor of
the Exchequer we are one trillion pounds in debt. I think you will find it
is £1.5 trillion because the PFI/PPP contracts Plus a multi
Million Pound repair bill for schools which collapsed in the breeze)

No doubt the Shadow
Chancellor will correct him of this minor arithmetic error soon
enough. I also note with a wry smile an additional 17% is being given to the
DFID Mafia for overseas aid.

With thanks

Dear Mr Bailey, ICO Solicitor

Please advise me how many
people from the UK ICO attended this convention. According to these press
releases, the FOIA needs strengthening across Europe. I don’t subscribe to this
argument; there is nothing wrong with the UK FOIA only the people who are
running it, who are dishonest and willfully blind.

With thanks
