Lew said… about prisons
I think there’s a conflict of interest here. The government shouldn’t be allowed to design and build with public money what might (if there is any justice) be the future residence of some of its members.
Lew said… about one politician’s credibility
Interesting that de Jong says the government accepts the report in its entirety but he’s still reviewing it. I recall him telling us four contradictory versions of the Basi/Virk payoff in its immediate aftermath, so I don’t put much stock in anything he says.
I also recall that he was minister responsible in both of these travesties, and note the triggerman wielding the pen in both was one Graham Whitmarsh.
