Anger at move to restrict FoI Act

Here’s why the techies on ILUG didn’t get excited about the Government’s plan to restrict the Freedom of Information act:

  1. It came just a week after the data retention fiasco. There’s only so much ranting and raving one can do, even the ILUG! People are bored of politics.
  2. The FOI Act deals with data that most people just don’t care about in their day to day life. The data retention policy directly applies to me because I go online at home. Do I have any issue with the Governement that I need “secret” information to persue? No, of course not, but if you are concerned about the running of the Government then the FOI Act is important. In a perfect democracy all citizens would be concerned citizens..
