Classic Gotcha from parliament

It was the last question of the day yesterday and Damian O’Connor had already been pasted and bashed about over Parole and his involvement in the Philip Field affair and then he cops this from Sandra Goudie.
[quote]Sandra Goudie: Will the Minister ever release the reports he has received on problem-gambling service providers; if he will, when—or is he worried they will highlight his incompetence?
Hon DAMIEN O’CONNOR: No and yes.[/quote]

And all the good work of all the other questions is unraveled in unbridled laughter across the house.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
