Crown copyright.

I've been catching up with the situation with Craig Murray and have been reading about the Crown Copyright slant on silencing him.

Of course, like a lot of things, this made me think. What exactly is Crown Copyright? The government produces masses of documentation every day which we pay for with our taxes. To say that something which can be retrieved by a single member of the British public cannot then be reproduces must rank up there with 'There is no link between Iraq and 7/7.'

I'm still of the opinion every document that is produced by our government should be available on a government archive website the only exceptions are defense information where it would give intelligence to the enemy. There should be no such think as crown copyright for any UK citizen.

Any port in a storm for these guys. Next think he will find he is being sued because he is telling everyone he worked for the government and the word government is crown copyright.
