POLITICS: This whole story just makes me think the government has no idea about utilising modern technology wisely.
"According to a report in the Times, the deleted e-mails will be stored on back-up systems which are beyond the reach of the Freedom of Information Act because of the cost of accessing them."
How difficult will it be to access them exactly, and how are they going to get them onto these magic and mysterious systems in the first place?
It all sounds like political smoke-screens and not the whole story.
Freedom of information is a strange idea anyway, we, the public will always be relying on someone or some department to be honest about what is known and what is fact etc.
Call me an old cynic, go on...
