Govt orders email cover-up Monday

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Blair's Cabinet office orders destruction of government emails before Freedom of Information Act comes into force. Too late to save Blunkett, but what other scandals are being covered up? Not to mention the operational information which will be lost. If you had email correspondence with any Govt Dept more than 3 months ago, forget it, they will on Monday.

    John, Hackle's not known for his sense of humour.
    At least, not where this government's concerned !

    However this bit's quite interesting:

  4. It is good to see open government in practice! :evil:

    The silver lining to this cloud is that the news was probably released by the only trustworthy source nowadays - a disgruntled civil servant (think of the workload this little gem will generate) - and that this is more mud sticking to Bliar and his lot of lying sh!ts. :twisted:
     
  5. Huh

    Sulk

    :lol: :lol: :lol:
     
  6. Just how much space do a couple of million emails occupy when saved? About a shoebox-full, so the 'saving space' argument is farcical.

    Let's hope that civil service printers have been working overtime recently.
     
  7. As usual,B-liar's shower of effluent,will try and cover their tracks when they can. :twisted:
