* Â The only thing wrong with it is that its not the truth: from the Peoples Republic of Kruddistan:
Andrew Bolt: KRudd’s message received
It’s just under a month since the Special Minister of State, John Faulkner, declared that “the best safeguard against ill-informed public judgment is not concealment but information”. He added that “there is a growing acceptance thatÂ the right of the people to know … is fundamental to democracy”.
Five days after this tragedy, there has been virtually no official information released on the event, even though the Government would almost certainly have received a brief from the navy. HMAS Albany had intercepted the boat and some navy personnel were on board it, and were injured, when the explosion took place.
We’re not allowed to know anything that might reflect badly on the KRudd Government or the boat people who blew up their own vessel. Only happy news is to be fed to us:
SEVERAL sailors and an RAAF Reserve doctor will be recommended for bravery awardsÂ in the wake of last week’s boat-people tragedy off northern Australia…
that should shut them up. Stay tuned for new arrivals!
The great circus begins again, with human rights lawyers as the prime attraction and taxpayers as their dupes:
A human rights lawyer saysÂ the Federal Government could be liable to pay compensationÂ to the families of those killed and injured after the Ashmore Reef asylum boat explosion.
