Good day to bury bad news

Well, the would be Queen has died and the world is agrief. What a great day to bury bad news. What other times can you remember where serious issues that should have been raised in full public view have been soft balled by devious politicians. Any that do homage to the great lady herself greatfully read.

One that comes to mind is the time when Stephen Byers was the Transport Secretary and had some truly bad news to release... BBC NEWS | UK | UK Politics | Stephen Byers resignation: TV and Radio reports

This was a underhand tactic brought to us by the spinmeisters at Neu Arbiet.No doubt the Prince of darkness had a hand in this.

A great pity it is not "him" that the Grim Reaper came for yesterday.

PS it's Tuesday here.

From 2006.........

Tony Blair has become the first serving Prime Minister to be questioned by police in connection with a criminal investigation.
He spent nearly two hours at No.10 talking about the cash for peerages affair to Scotland Yard officers.

Critics accused Mr Blair of trying to bury bad news – the interview took place as the long-awaited report into Princess Diana’s death was being revealed to the public.
