Watch Dispatches on Channel 4 this evening at 8pm. Peter Oborne presents a brave expose of the British lobby in the UK. Not that they do anything illegal, just that they should do it in the light. openDemocracy, supported by OurKingdom has published the pamphlet that accompanies the programme. You can read it, and the publishers statement by Tony Curzon Price, oD's Editor-in-Chief, HERE. More on its significance later.

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?

Who is bankrolling Britain's democracy? Which groups shape the stories we see in the press; which voices are silenced, and why? Sign up here to find out.
