DIAC takes the booby prize

The Global Mail, with permission and acknowledgement, has published my piece on Immigration and the tortured FOI reasoning exhibited in blocking requests for detention centre incident reports, under the much catchier headline "And the Prize For Evading The Public's Right to Know Goes to..." 

Yep, based on the comparators I have from recent personal experience they're right - in the gaming stakes, it's DIAC way out in front of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Attorney General's. But alas, this race is never over.
