The UK parliament is currently evaluating changes to the UK Official Secrets Act that would see jail for life for people who let others know of law-breaking in government and corporations (whistleblowers). Changes to the Act are aimed to prevent any public interest journalism. Journalist Mohamed Elmaazi reports on the draft legislation in fascinating and chilling detail in John Kiriakos' interview. Public interest would be erased as a defense. The proposed changes to the law would also criminalise reporting crimes by private industry and doing something as harmless as graffitiing the wall of government or private infrastructure. Are there enough psychopaths and idiots in the UK parliament to allow these changes to become law? It seems likely. Why is this important for Australia? Because we follow UK standards and laws and the same trend is happening here.
