Blood and Guts, Ctd

Maybe it was the fairies wot done it:

JULIA Gillard has insisted her staff had no access to the video on YouTube showing an angry Kevin Rudd swearing, but supporters of the Foreign Minister say the material was left behind on a computer in the prime minister’s office when he was deposed.

Rudd supporters said the material could be seen only on two locked computers in the prime ministerial office and the material was never sent to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.

However, the Prime Minister’s Office last night said the two computers had been returned to PM&C as surplus to requirements and her office did not have access to the recording.

      It wasnt lunch, it was an official ceremony attended by Gilliard as well , at the same location as the tent embassy.

    but seriously, the old legal saying “Cui bono” is pretty useful in working out who was trying to benefit from a smear on Rudd.

    “However, the Prime Minister’s Office last night said the two computers
    had been returned to PM&C as surplus to requirements and her office
    did not have access to the recording.”

    I find it very hard to believe that hard drives would not have been wiped immediately, if not destroyed altogether if this was really the case. Alternatively an encrypted file system would mean that access to the drives would be impossible if the computer leaves the network.
    Particularly given sensitive documents a PM must have access to.

    In short it can’t be too hard to work out the individual who is responsible for the release.
