the three monkeys do their thing
Saddam fronts the inquiry: 'That little Johnny boy was in my pocket for years'.Watching the Four Corners report on the AWB scandal made me realise that it was worse than I'd thought, and hugely damaging to us internationally. I mentioned to Sarah that the only good that might come out of it is that it could bring down the government, but on reflection that's wishful thinking. Quiggin's analysis is probably spot on with this one - it's classic see no hear no speak no evil stuff from our three guys (I wonder if there's been a cartoon along those lines - there surely must've been). Of course, much depends on Cole's eventual finding and commentary. If he expresses strong doubts about the veracity or competence of government ministers, that will surely have repercussions. Then again, the federal election's a long way off.
