Talk about timely. This could well be the face of the man who will restore my faith in public transparency.

Last week I was given a hard boot in the backside when the Scottish Government roundly rejected my Freedom of Information request.

I’d asked for the successful submissions which earned six PR agencies the right to pitch for the vast majority of the government’s PR work over the coming four years.

Given the massively, lucrative sums involved I naively expected our public guardians would be tripping over themselves to prove exactly why the nation’s taxpayers should be so grateful for this arrangement.

Not so.
