One TV reporter speculated the riot police was a dog and pony show to distract everyone away from the demands for an audit of the public purse.
Everyone is accusing everyone. Chancery Court who commands police and sheriffs said the Chief Navigator overreacted and there was no threat other than rocks. They are all but accusing the Chief Navigator of lying to them to get riot police. Overreaction. Rocks and snow balls don’t a riot make. Potato launchers are not an armed army of anarchists. Elaborate slingshots to shoot snow balls do not as war make! No one knows where the bullets came from but both sides were hit. What does that prove? I don’t know. So now the Privy Council is accusing the Chief Navigator of being hysterical. They are pulling back all of the police. What a mess! And the budget bill is still stalled so the government is all but paralyzed. We are approaching the debt ceiling. This seems like a bad knock off of the Cruz & Canter Yankland farce. The Upper Chamber is demanding a full investigation of misuse of police by the Chief Navigator. One TV reporter speculated the riot police was a dog and pony show to distract everyone away from the demands for an audit of the public purse. The TV shows quickly snuffed that. But then the BBC sent reporters to ferret out any leads to that delicious whiff of scandal. But I bet the Chief Navigator would shut that down fast. The BBC will get bored fast. I don’t think anyone in the world is even following this. Everyone is following the Syria bloodbath.
