Doogan findings

I understand that the Supreme Court will bring down its findings on Coroner Maria Doogan tomorrow.

Let’s hope it’s a win for democracy! I found it repugnant that Stanhope as the AG used his position to try and muzzle an inquiry into his own actions as Head of Government. I hope he ‘burns’ for this one!

Thumper settle boy.

You know as well as I do that incompetence hastens promotion.

80% of the time…

It’s just another case of “I’m allowed to do it and you are not.”

Stanhope seems to think he can make as many stupid court appeals and delays as he wants, but not Save The Ridge.

Stanhope defended his grafitti artist staff member and then slammed Bill Stefaniak for having a press conference where he sprayed a sign and then cleaned it.

He told us all to blame him for the fires, now he and his staff don’t even remember them! and the coroner isn’t allowed to blame him anymore.

Maybe I’m just being cynical, but I am convinced that he changes the rules to suit himself and then thinks nobody else will notice.

Triumph for democracy might be a bit strong.

Seperation of Powers maybe.

but let’s see what the courts say first.
