Why don’t they just shut up?

First it was Adam Feeley making a fool of himself with grandstading in the media and now it is Sean Hughes.

On monday the NBR published an article about the length of time it is taking to progress cases by the SFO and FMA [NBR subscriber content]. The head of the FMA is obviously not a busy man because he found time in his busy schedule to go and put a comment on the article.

Honestly where do these guys get their good ideas from? Are they taking public relations advice from Andi Brotherston?

    Option 1 – Nice positioning by Sean Hughes. Clearly he’s trying to get in and stop any potential perception that he’s as useless as Five Fingers Feeley by at least commenting. 

    Option 2 is that the head of the FMA has too much time on his hands and is too preoccupied with what other people are saying. This is a scary thought as it gives rise to the prospect that he bases his investigative actions on random public comments and the so-called “public mood”.
