  1. Interesting that Moriarty will be reporting to the Justice Minister. The way you put it about how he’s not reporting to any of the logical ministers (Attorney General, Defence etc) but to someone else reminded me of my studies of the Third Reich. Hitler would, when there was overlap issues between two agencies, involve a *third* agency to further confuse the mix and as a result, the duplication of effort and the competing of agencies for the Fuhrer’s favour would be horrendously inefficient.
    I found it interesting in light of things recently I’d noticed where, for example on the execution of the Bali drug smugglers, the government were being represented the next day by Turnbull in much of the media – a communications minister, when it would have been far more appropriate for the foreign affairs, or prime ministers to be fronting the morning radio & TV that day.

    Also Stilgherrian, your ‘tag’ for Michael Pezzullo in this post is spelled wrong 🙂
