It also requires a definition of “leak”.
For example, is confidential information put into the public domain that is favourable to a minister, or unfavourable to his critics, a leak. Is a minister’s political adviser, whose job is to do this and who also happens to be paid out of taxpayers’ money, a “miscreant” under Mr Ginty’s definition? Should powerful politicians control all the information and exclude the rest of us from knowing the bits that are inconvenient to themselves?
