Dear Fleming, Stephanie,

Thank you for your response to my OIA request. I suggest that you continue to review your records as I know of a number of people, myself included, who have declared independence from the corrupt City of Auckland recently.

I was just interested in how widespread the problem is.

But then lying on OIA requests isn't exactly unknown to corrupt City of Auckland employees.

Yours sincerely,

James Smith

Re-phrase your question. And make the point of noting whether you are using the "Queen's English" or Black's Law.
