What do they know?


I recently heard about the website http://www.whatdotheyknow.com

It facilitates the process of requesting information under the UK’s Freedom of Information Act. In fact, it makes it as easy as sending an email.

You can also browse the requests which have been submitted and the responses which have been given. It’s interesting in the first instance just to see which kind of requests are answered and which are rejected, and on what grounds.

For example, someone asks about the UK’s arsenal of nuclear warheads here

If you make any requests or come across any notable ones I would be interested to hear about them.
