An ever more opaque era of transparency

johnboy 2 April 2012 3

After taking a little break in March this afternoon we’ve had two Summaries of Cabinet Outcomes released. One for 12 March and the other for 19 March.

I particularly liked this bit for 12 March:

Two meetings of the Budget Committee of Cabinet were held. Treasury officials joined with Ministers to discuss matters of fiscal significance.

A meeting of the Urban Development Committee of Cabinet was also held. Officials joined with Ministers to discuss matters of planning and developmental significance.

If only the Banana Committee of Cabinet could meet to discuss matters of banana significance.

In 19 March’s waste of electrons we also learn that Cabinet has “agreed to endorse the proposed appointment to the Government Schools Education Council”, but not who that appointment might be.

Give yourself an award for that headline, sir.

I wonder if in any of these summaries we will be told that projects are over-budget and late ?

Or is that covered in ‘fiscal significance’ ?

I’m guessing they accidentally omitted the final line of that section: “Don’t you worry your pretty little heads about it”.
