The Guardian and Crikey share common ground on open government

Paul Farrell in The Guardian continues his series on the war against the Office of Australian Information Commissioner and Josh Thomas in Crikey (subscription) covers similar territory, Thomas canvassing initiatives Prime Minister Turnbull could take to give effect to his pledge to open and transparent government:
  • abandon plans to shut down the OAIC, 
  • undertake a complete overhaul of the Freedom of Information Act
  • look into record keeping in the digital information age
  • move FOI from the Attorney-General's Department into PM&C to take it away from just being "lawyers' business"
  • join the Open Government Partnership.
