Secret States

A quote from a leading article in today’s Times newspaper:

“Britain has long been too secretive. Recent cases in several local councils suggest that voters are being kept in the dark.

In Nottinghamshire the county council is considering a proposal to dissolve all borough and district councils and subsume their responsibilities in a single unitary authority. Their debates on this immense change take place not in public or with journalists present, but behind closed doors.”
