Backdown on Fiji called a “thaw”

  • July 31st, 2012

If you follow this blog you read in May about the 'thaw" reported today on Stuff.

No sign yet of our democracy working to ask how to avoid such bipartisan stupidity again.

Presumably the lack of leaks from  demoralised MFAT folk, blaming their political masters, means they were equally if not more culpable.

The most worrying sign of our vulnerability to bad judgment on matters foreign  is in the continuing lack of MSM exploration of why this debacle  went unchallenged. I suspect a shared chattering class eagerness to treat good intentions as sufficient for policy formation.
