Funny, isn't it? One day John Howard says his government is ready to co-operate fully with the Cole Enquiry IF AND WHEN Commissioner Terence Cole asks for it, the next day (after Cole makes an informal request) he says his Government has handed over everything already:
"I mean, what more can I say?" he said.If Cole has any decency he will publicly demand a broadening of his terms of enquiry.
"I've given him my documents, he's got my file, he's got Mr Downer's file, he's got the Defence Minister's file, he's got the Attorney-General's file, he's given notices to produce to all these government departments - and let him do his job."
