Freedom of Information

A warning to Rugby residents that the Freedom of Information Act does not apply in Rugby - at least not the "free", (but the dumb may still apply), as far as air quality and industrial pollution are concerned.

On Saturday two residents were told information they had requested, that is normally provided free in other Boroughs, cost £50,000 in Rugby. Worse was to come as on Monday one of the two amazed residents received a further epistle stating that she has used up another £50,000 of Council money since Saturday, which is an awful lot of photocopies! Residents have asked for a breakdown of the costs as they have been startled by the rumour that these were largely attributed to personnel taking slow boats to China in order to avoid answering any leading questions.
