OK, Mr Grieve, I know all you Tories look down on us plebs with disdain, and that we don't run the country and we should remember our place, but although we may not have gone "up" to Oxford, some of our number are capable of working simple stuff out.

I think it does... and you mr lawyer person, have just told us that.
I suppose there is no point in putting forward the same FoI request in Scotland. Old Wallace of Tankedness would undoubtedly follow the same set of instructions as Grieve.
