A new British law that took effect Wednesday makes Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Prince William exempt from freedom of information laws, meaning many private details of their lives won't be made public for decades.



On the heels of the fiasco that has been wikileaks over the past few months, this story caught my eye. The royal family, most notably the Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Prince William will be protected by this veil of secrecy for 20 years.


It also reduces the time that government papers are routinely kept secret from 30 to 20 years. Papers relating to the royals also will be released after 20 years — or five years after the death of the individual in question, whichever is later.


The article points out that although the royal family holds no political power, they do have theirs hands in a number of political projects and this new law will make it near impossible to hold them accountable should any laws be broken.

So any information directly dealing with the monarch along with the 1st and 2nd in line to the throne, most notably personal documents and communiques are exemt from the 2005 Freedom of Information act in the UK.

i dont know which country is more mental, the yanks for keeping the idiots in power or the poms who keep the idiots who dont really have power in power!

it just seems ridiculous that no one has assassinated one or both of anyone in these parties but someone will assinate someone who really doesnt have any power at all.. where are all the wack jobs when it comes to getting rid of the people we need "gotten" rid of ???????????????????

That’s one way to gain the peoples trust.
So we won’t see the files on Dianna. We won’t see any correspondence associated with the Bilderberg Group.

What else are they hiding? Can anyone else think of anything?

Only if those files are in relation to the Queen, Prince Charles or Prince William.
Only the monarch and the first two in line for the crown are covered by this law.

If Prince Harry has anything, it is fair game.
