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)

Synopsis

This is a popular guide to the Freedom of Information Act, now updated in a new edition. Have you ever wanted to force open the secretive doors of government? This book provides all the tools you need. With a new foreword by Ian Hislop, it's also fully updated to include: new chapters on Scotland and the law in practice; tips for digging out information and new template letters; an expanded and updated directory; examples of case law that you can use in your quest for answers; and an expanded business chapter to help you get contracts, tenders and performance evaluations. "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 of "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy". "Even with my knowledge of Britain's secretive and undemocratic system of government, I found this book to be an eye opener. I will certainly be using the book myself to access public records about my case which until now have remained secret." - David Shayler, former MI5 officer.
