It was obviously going to happen, but it happened a bit quicker than even I could have predicted. One does have to wonder if perhaps this is part of the reason the Rudd government have been so enthusiastically cutting expenses anywhere they can find them since gaining power?
The compensation claims don’t have to be successful, the money which will be spent on the legal proceedings is bad enough.
Incidentally, I’ve been drafting an editorial about the apology since Tuesday, I’ll try and finish it by tonight…it’s probably better now that the compensation claims are starting.
