One of the jobs I had marked on my calendar for the holiday season was dismantling the second interim report of the Costello Audit Commission, due to be delivered on 30 November. While it’s obviously necessary to respond to these exercises in deception, I can think of plenty of better ways to spend the summer break. Fortunately, Campbell Newman turned out to be even less keen on defending the report than I was on attacking it. The government has announced the report won’t be released after all, so we won’t see anything more from Costello until February. Thanks, Can-Do!
