UK Gov't Tells MPs They Can't See ACTA Details

While there have been more and more calls for transparency on ACTA negotiations, it seems that even government officials are being stymied. Some UK Parliament Members have asked for the details and are being told they cannot see the document because mysterious, nameless "others" require it to be kept secret. Of course, if you're an industry lobbyist, it's not hard to see the document. But, if your job is to represent the people? Get in line. You'll see it once it's been signed, sealed and delivered.

This is obviously not something any democracy should support, any politicians doing so are by implication corrupt and unfit for public office.

Somebody wants to start invoking the freedom of information act on ACTA. It will be interesting to see the supposed justification by governments for not making this information readily available.
