The Canberra Times has word on threats by a seemingly increasingly irate Jon Stanhope to stop giving briefings to the Liberals if they’re going to do underhanded things like quote just how vague and breezy the briefings are.
But maybe they won’t need the briefings for long. Another story in the CT explains that the Greens have passed into law the Liberal vision for new Freedom of Information laws. It will get harder to hide things under the new regime.
In fact there’s been quite a lot of cooperation between the Greens and Liberals this week. So much so that one has to wonder if yesterday’s theatrics was more about giving the Greens cover from the left, rather than genuine outrage.
