Christopher Lao Supports Freedom of Information Bill, Insists “We Should All be Informed”
Remember Christopher Lao, who attained online notoriety after driving into car-stalling floods? Months after featuring in a BPI Family ad, Mr. Lao has thrown his profile behind a more public-oriented cause.
Lao has declared his support for the proposed Freedom of Information Bill, in a banner that has now made the social networking rounds:
The banner obviously makes fun of Lao’s famous utterance “I wasn’t informed!”, said under duress as he was asked by a reporter why he drove straight into a deep flood. Two things stand out:
- Christopher Lao works out. Make fun of his foolhardy drive at your peril!
- The guy realy knows how to laugh at himself.
The Freedom of Information Bill is a proposed law that requires government organizations to fulfill requests for detailed data on their operations. Numerous countries throughout the world have implemented their own freedom of information law; a local version would ideally make corruption more difficult, because the bill would theoretically allow easier access to the dealings of public servants and enable transparency.
