Product description

Review

Information is born free, but everywhere is in chains. Heather Brooke has written the Information Liberation Front guide to end the politicians’ enslavement of the facts which belong to the public. Bravo. (Greg Palast, author The Best Democracy Money Can Buy)

Heather Brooke pulls no punches when it comes to exposing how the government, public institutions and private companies all keep the British public in the dark. Even better, she tells readers how they can successfully challenge the system using the latest public access laws. (Michael Crick, BBC journalist)

Labour had been promising freedom of information for decades. Now we are getting it we need to keep the pressure on, and this is just the book to do that. All journalists should pick up these tricks. (Jeremy Dear, General Secretary of the National Union of Journalists)

Both revealing and practical, 'Your Right to Know' is a necessary antidote to the British culture of secrecy. (David Banisar, Deputy Director of Privacy International)

About the Author

Heather Brooke worked in the United States as a newspaper reporter. She used the American FOI Act to uncover politicians misuse of public funds for travel and personal election campaigning. Later, as a crime reporter in South Carolina for a New York Times regional newspaper, she uncovered flaws in the state's forensic crime lab and exposed dangerous practices in funeral homes. Both investigations resulted in changes to state law
