The spinners in parliament and government are rather predictable. The ideal time for them to dump their disgusting embarrassments into the public sphere is typically late on a friday, preferably when it is it is a long holiday weekend or there is a lot of other interesting news around.
This ensures that the media and public are distracted and will allow several days of cooling down of the pungency of the wafting stench of corruption. This works especially well with the media who often have a concentration span that even babies often exceed, which is probably why the TV3 news team prefers to invent stories rather than chase them down.
Well it is a long time to the next long weekend with good weather. However there is considerable media interest in a contest between some low flying aircraft in San Diego.
Would anyone care to speculate on what we will see later today on the friday dump? I’m picking some material dropping off the rear of DOC related to what Nick Smith saw and can no longer remember….
