What are your local cafes and restaurants like? Good? Safe? Hygienic? If one of the places you patronise caused heaps of food poisoning cases, would you trust your local council who is responsible for such matters to deal with it adequately? Wouldn't you want to know if your fave Chinese takeaway had dubious food preparation standards and many people had suffered food poisoning, even if you had not?
I think it is a motherhood statement to say that you would want to know. I certainly would. Your local council has this information, but they are not going to tell you.
Blogger Fitzroyalty is battling against his local council for such information. His campaign could bring about Victorian legislative changes. He deserves our support. Read from here downwards. Skim if you must. You will still pick it up.
