data.gov.uk – Opening up government

data.gov.uk is opening up the government like the hands of goatse.

Data.gov.uk makes access to data easy by providing a list of links to other pages which link to PDFs which have embedded links to excel files in them. What could possibly be simpler?

I guess I should be glad that I live in a country open enough to release this data, albeit in a roundabout way. Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act we can ask them just how much this site cost us, and they will say “mumble mumble mumble”.
