    I want you, I need you,
    But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you.
    Now don’t be sad,(don’t be sad)

      Banana Republic
      Septic Isle
      Screaming in the Suffering sea
      It sounds like crying
      Everywhere I go
      Everywhere I see
      The black and blue uniforms
      Police and priests

    So, basically, everybody except Callinan and O’Sullivan is telling lies……………

      You’ve summed it up in a nutshell. What a joke, and O’Sullivan still has the “confidence” of the government.

        I doubt they do really , governments are all about that ‘confidence’ thing , whether it be banks or snr officers , especially when they appoint them. I doubt she can do much more damage. Sure it would be useful to not have her in place so you can collect evidence to prosecute, but that was never on the cards ….

        Id rather they leave her in place until they find the right replacement , otherwise we will be right back in this spot in a few yrs time

          I don’t disagree with you Phil. At the same time, is that really good enough? Change has to come sometime – why not now? Why not a good old ‘Stalinist ‘ purge, and try to start afresh. Forgive me, I’m old and getting really impatient :-)

          There was no interest in the position, from any international candidate. It probably wouldn’t be any different this time, meaning promoting from within.
