‘Ministers could be given stronger powers to block scrutiny of public bodies under government transparency law, Downing Street has said.
Speaking ahead of the expected release of documents detailing Prince Charles’s correspondence with ministers, Number 10 argued that there was a “strong case” for beefing up the ministerial veto on freedom of information requests.
“Our view remains – as the government has argued in the lengthy legal proceedings [regarding the Prince’s correspondence] – that there is a strong case for there being the ability to exercise a ministerial veto,” he told a briefing of journalists.’
Street Democracy writes:
Our Tory government have an intolerable thirst to inflict legalised oppressions with lips of blue, spouting verbal destruction towards human rights, basic civil liberties and our welfare state.
Tory political bullies set a furious legalised corrupt expedition at our expense to the point it is so obvious they having to reset laws to become invisible to the public eye.
Democracy expresses an ‘open government’ representing its legitimacy and the Tories want a shut tight, closed one.
It is painfully obvious corruption is saturated within Tory government with a fanatical commitment to its ceaseless expansion that it needs to legalise hiding behind armed guard doors.
We are saturated by antagonising and oppressive policies and forced to walk a darken loathsome pathyway filled with sour principles and unclean wisdom by virtue of the Tory Party.
