The plain fact, however, is that in many areas of public life, Secrecy still rules UK.

Despite the Freedom of Information Act - and maybe because of it - the world of spin doctors has now become an industry of it own.

There been an explosion of public relations experts and press officers, in counties like Suffolk as well as across Britain - but titles like The Evening Star have never found it tougher to root out the facts.
