Sir Ian Crisp

5/06/2009Ad Astra, the chagrin you must be feeling now is most likely quiet palpable. However, if you need consoling may I say you have a terrific sidestep.

5/06/2009Sir Ian, I presume the chagrin to which you refer is over the Fitzgibbon affair. I've been waiting for it to play out before writing the postscript, which I'll probably do over the long weekend, although the Opposition is darkly suggesting there's 'more to come'. That, and its attempt to smear the PM seem to be all it's got left to talk about after its arguments about how best to handle the GFC and its trenchant criticism of the Government's approach have been being left high and dry by the encouraging National Accounts figures. It wasn't a perfect week, but the growth in GDP made it one of the best in recent months.
