Journalist chasing Turnbull's little blue book Featured

By

Malcolm Turnbull's 'blue book' - his full briefing on the communications portfolio - could soon be in the public arena thanks to a new crowdfunding campaign.

Aussie tech journalist and former iTWire contributor Renai LeMay has long been in pursuit of full details around the Coalition's NBN policies, and his latest effort needs your help.

He explains that ‘Blue Books’ are what ministers in a new government receive when they're sworn in, and they contain a plethora of information and details on various aspects of each relevant portfolio put together by public servants.

Given the obvious importance of the Communications portfolio and what it means for Australia's future LeMay filed a Freedom of Information (FOI) request for Turnbull's 545 page Communications briefing document, and was told it would cost just over $2000 to release. You can view the response to the request, with a cost breakdown, here.

"If you want to know everything that Turnbull does, if you want to see the 545 page Ministerial briefing he was provided with when he came to power, then we encourage you to chip in through the Pozible campaign we launched today for the issue," LeMay said.

Pledgers who wish to contribute on Pozible can choose from three funding options - a $5 'thank you' reward, a $15 'receive the documents' reward, and a $30+ reward that will see your name published on LeMay's site Delimiter as a thank you. The crowdfunding effort has already received $725 out of a $2,070 target just hours after launch.

Check out the Pozible page for yourself here and help see Turnbull's promise of transparency and openness become a reality.
