It’s always been the belief of 192.com’s founder and CEO, Alastair Crawford, that public information should be publicly available. So its good to see some of his greatest achievements, in terms of giving consumers access to public records, documented in Heather Brooke’s new book, The Silent State.
In this book, Heather Brooke reveals that the recent MPs’ expenses scandal is merely the tip of the iceberg and exposes the shocking and often farcical lack of transparency at all levels of government. At a time when the State knows more than ever about us, Brooke argues that without proper access to the information that citizens pay for, Britain can never be a true democracy.
Heather reveals all about the secrecy and propaganda that is central to government and for the first time, gives her exclusive and definitive account of her five-year campaign to have MPs’ expenses revealed, which rocked the nation and transformed Britain’s political landscape.
It a very intriguing read so why not get yourself a copy the Silent State today? >>
