Choccy Frog and Gold star - Sarcs.

When I wrote the previous, I was wondering just how to beat the miles of spinning red tape and legal tap dancing about Australia's clever exemptions to obligations under ICAO. There seems to be a huge body of legal work wiggled into the "differences" all designed to suit. The way it all seems to read is that in "real" terms Australia's obligations have been very cleverly manipulated to the point where ICAO has very little effective horse power to expect, let alone demand anything.

Some very fancy legal dancing steps around the edges: we have published our differences, therefore we 'comply': spirit?, intent ? - wuzzat? Almost has a mystical feel to it, a whiff of brimstone and just a touch of a strange magical farce.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

Second Witch
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
We even pay for first class tickets so this can be done in Montreal and other exotic locations. How very clever, how very, very wicked.

Stop press: Willyleaks rumour pages -
One of three separate servings of paper have been delivered to the wabbit warren. Rumour has it the final two are due by months end.
Just a whisper on the wind - but hope springs eternal....
