In which our intrepid hero makes an uninformed comment on current events.

Hugo Kelly of Crikey hits the whole Brogden resignation nail on the head, as far as I’m concerned:

John Brogden missed the point totally yesterday. His error of judgement was not so much the slurs and the frat-boy behaviour, but the cover up. The greatest offence is in the ethics of his denial, and the sneaky hope over nearly a month for a whitewash. […]

Had he done a mea culpa as soon as the rumour hit the streets he might well have survived it as a youthful indiscretion. But he didn’t, so we’ll never know.

I’d like to add, by the way, that I’m not party to the internal goings-on of the Liberals in NSW Parliament. I have no clue as to whom the next Opposition Leader will be—so would people stop bothering me about it?

It’s not that life-threateningly important. You can wait another 24 hours and read it online or in the papers, just like the rest of us poor schmucks.
