A Cockermouth man who inundated the town’s council with Freedom of Information requests and tried to take it to court has cost taxpayers more than £1,500.
Have your say
I say good on him!! - Holding our officals to account. They're just scared the information he asks for will cause a scandal.
Ronald O'Hapsburg: The applicant went to court - that is a public place where details are in the public domain. Perhaps you will retract your scurrilous allegation as you clearly have not a clue what you are talking about.
So can I make a FIA application to see how much money and time he's wasted and what the money would have gone to had he not been such a non-public spirited individual? Clearly he needs to get a hobby!
