Derby Telegraph comment: Zombie query is no joke
YOU couldn't make it up.
Among Freedom of Information requests submitted to Derby City Council was a question on how the authority would tackle a "zombie outbreak".
It raises a chuckle, but there are serious consequences. It cost £50 to deal with the request, at a time when the council is having to axe jobs.
Authorities have to respond to requests by law, but is it time for them to be allowed to ask the Information Commissioner to rule certain questions are spurious, and do not need to be answered? All that would cost is the price of a letter.
