Stuff’s Political writer Luke Malpass is one of our best. He’s always balanced, apolitical and intelligent. I treasure this extract from his article last week on the government’s abysmal covid vaccine record.
However, it’s all very well laughing at this nonsensical verbosity, but the implications are serious. What it reveals is an inability to be honest and admit a cock-up, as the Australian PM did and apologised to the nation for, but worse, screaming incompetence and abysmally poor judgement.
