UK: Police PR Spending from Your Right To Know.

UK:The Commons and its tormentors from Open Secrets.

Bermuda: Sunshine Week (with a chance of showers) from Vexed Bermoothes.

Canada: Ontario Commissioner releases 2007 annual report from Canadian Privacy Law Blog.

Australia: Secrecy prevails over Indigenous policy from the Keryn McKinnon Blog.

Scotland: Tony Blair’s expenses shredded ‘by mistake’ from Freedom of Information (Scotland) Web Log
