Disingenuous [Jan. 25th, 2014|09:42 am]

There's a file on the Profumo affair that's still embargoed and is going to stay embargoed for the foreseeable future. Andrew Lloyd-Webber is leading a campaign to have it opened. This morning's Mail thinks it's terribly unfair that people are jumping to the conclusion that it's Prince Philip who's being protected.

Gah, I hate official secrecy- especially when its only purpose is to protect the great and not so good.

I agree - it should be out in the open - it is not a state secret anyway.

It has constitutional implications. The Windsors rule by consent of the people. If they were discovered to have been behaving really badly that consent might be withdrawn- and the government of the day would have a huge crisis on its hands.
