In the Spectator in mid-September 2014 Melissa Kite wrote a piece entitled “If the RSPCA can prosecute you, why shouldn’t it take Freedom of Information requests?” Melissa’s piece began: “After a rush of blood to the head, I decided it might be a good idea to ask some awkward questions of the RSPCA. Oh no, I hear you cry. What fresh hell is this? Let me explain. I found out that the charity is pretty much closed to any kind of scrutiny. Unlike other powerful organisations, the police or government bodies, the RSPCA is immune to Freedom of Information requests.” Read the piece in full here.
