Whistleblowers – people who expose things like tax dodging and unnecessary NHS deaths – can reveal secrets that are in the interest of the public. But new plans to potentially lock up some whistleblowers for up to 14 years could have a chilling effect – keeping hidden things we all have a right to know.
These plans were floated last night, it could be the government testing the waters to see how the public reacts to the idea. Let’s show them we’re against locking up whistleblowers – and the journalists they leak to – for up to 14 years. Sign the petition now.
