More in the mortar
So the Justice Minister was fired for lying to the cabinet. However, one thing is still very unsettling and very, very troubling. After all the explanations by the Prime Minister, it is unclear the role that Cabinet played during their deliberation of Cabinet note J (12) 29 dealing with Section 34, prior to its proclamation. It is unbelievable that a Cabinet, full of lawyers, would discuss a note from the Justice Minister and not consider the implications of an early proclamation of Section 34.
It also stretches credibility to believe that the Prime Minister and her cabinet were ignorant of the consequences. It appears that the Prime Minister is fully aware that her entire Cabinet is implicated in this scandal but has skilfully chosen to excise one minister in order to save face for all the rest.
