Letter - Politicians and memory

00:15, Oct 19 2012

Was there a major national security and national health and safety threat caused by Megaupload? This saga should be cause for national concern. First the person's residency approval? Next a foreign state asking our Government to investigate his internet/computer activity. And now the onflow of litigation. We already know there are politicians who suffer from memory loss, fine honest honourable men who are unable to remember issues. It is obvious they have very forgiving wives as failure to remember certain dates would have caused conditioning, with enough lessons in memory to have rendered their abdication from politics and would have had them remembering dates, times and quite insignificant issues without further prompts.

However, it is always possible these men now sleep in single beds as a result of said failures and that the memory loss is the public punishment we must endure.
