In between its marathon ale-drinking sessions, TS sometimes enjoys grilling businesses and the profession with some pretty tough questions (other call it a job). If we can’t get the answers we need, well, then we simply head back to the pub.

But according to a senior chap at Capgemini – a consultancy carrying out some FOI work for the Home Office – the most sought after FOI requests are a tad unusual.
