Defying Empire commemorates the 50th anniversary of 1967 Referendum

So much for open government. Mitchell fire docs knifed.

Last week we were all mortified to learn of the unheeded warnings about the nerve gas billowing accident waiting to happen in the middle of the city.

Intriguingly the Freedom of Information documents revealing this horror have now been removed:

NOTE: These documents contain material the release of which has been disputed. In order to ensure compliance with all applicable guidelines, this material has been removed from the open government website pending a review of the matter and resolution of the concerns raised.

As all serious matters will be disputed we can safely say this is the end of Katy Gallagher’s short lived flirtation with open government.

But you will get tweets about the kids, and a cascade of flunkies retweeting any good news the propaganda department wants you to know about.

That’s nearly as good right?

“Open Government” was the name of an episode of Yes Minister. Now we’ve seen it for real.

As I’ve always said. Yes Minister was a documentary.

If nerve gas was billowing we may well have been mortified!

I saw the word “phosphine” in there

Used as a fumigant at low level. Were you thinking of phosgene instead?

Yeah prolly. Thanks! Saw the text only momentarily.

Until the PM appoints a horse as secretary of communications, let us at least comfort ourselves that it isn’t the worst pollution a government city has ever suffered.

I saw the word “phosphine” in there … presence recorded but not measured, so presumably concentration could have been high. So, what’s the basis for the government’s previous statement that there was no risk to public health? What are the health effects of exposure to phosphine gas?
And with reports on the record that the place was slack and “appeared to have home-made processing systems” – no surprise that Katie Gallagher is gagging the information.
I wonder what else they know.
