    I was amused yesterday that he accepted responsibility and apologized. He was very very sorry.

    This is the Left’s new shtick: do a fake teary apology and keep on going. When it happens again do another fake teary apology. And so on.

    Compare it with O’Farrell who resigned after accidentally drinking a bottle of wine.

    Nothing new about it. See Peter Beattie, who pioneered the tactic.

    Beat me to it B.J. Beattie was a master at mea culpa and we just got sick of it and he ran away. Not for long enough unfortunately.

    The fake apologies just give the media an excuse to move on. I note none of them moved on when Boris gave his version of fake apologies. This is pretty much a race to the bottom. One side not held to account, the other side just gives up and does it too. Then the only people left who enter politics are extreme narcissists.

    Exactly. Doesn’t work for Liberals. When they do it, it just gives the media grounds to rustle up “growing calls.”

  6. Buccaneer says:

    Growing calls, seizes on, x Lib accuses y lab of z, claims of, all media tactics largely used on one side not the other.

    Yup. It seems to work for Justin Trudeau. Repeatedly.

    He’s shameless.

    Labor will not repay money rorted from taxpayer as Premier Daniel Andrews stands defiant against calls for compensation (Sky News, 22 Jul)

    Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews has defended Labor’s position not to repay funds found to be misused by some government MPs.

    The Premier said the joint investigation between the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) and the Victorian Ombudsman had not recommended the party make compensation after it found “extensive misconduct” by MPs.

    Mr Andrews justified the decision not to repay the money as it was not explicitly suggested in the report, despite boasting that the government was “going beyond those recommendations”.

    In the age old love God or money question I think this confirms which one Andrews likes best.
