Labour in e-mail tampering claim

Yes Labour have been at it again, this time in Scotland. Aberdeen Council have been accused of tampering with emails - you can read the story on the BBC here. Except that is not the story although at first reading I thought it was. In fact the council is a Lib Dem/SNP run Council not that you would know that from the BBC report who only mention the Labour party. So this is not a story of an intrusive Labour council but a badly written BBC report.

"A council spokesman said: "It would be inappropriate to comment on any investigation, or to confirm whether any particular issue is being investigated.

"However, Aberdeen City Council can confirm that it does not open or read the content of the e-mail correspondence of councillors or staff. In the course of an investigation, the council can look at the titles of e-mails and the titles of any attachments, for a specified time period. "
