The hypocrisy of Pat Rabbitte

Responding to media and other criticisms of the Government’s recent attempt to substantially increase the cost of submitting a freedom of information request the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte said:

To present it as killing off the Freedom of Information Act is the kind of hyperbole that is just not worthy of respectable public discourse.

Responding to the Fianna Fail/Progressive Democrats Government’s plan to subvert the Freedom of Information Act in 2003 the then leader of the Labour Party Pat Rabbitte said:

It is a sad commentary on the self-appointed watchdogs of the Progressive Democrats that they are prepared to collude in shutting out the public and the media.
