I’m at home with a sick child today and am listening to the Parliamentary Inquiry. Will post what I can when I have something below but my impression of the first panel after hearing the final panel?
Will re-listen to the inquiry and post my thoughts and select bits of transcripts. Suffice to say a very informative and professional discussion with the final panel, Beddington, Slingo and Watson. In stark contrast to the first panel, IMNSHO and all the more reason to be very very skeptical of the so-called skeptics. What a dog and pony show.
I’ve been involved in similar inquiries, although I am one of those who would have been sitting behind the officials, writing their speaking notes and background briefs and submissions rather than answering questions, thank the gods. As a bit of background, I did prepare briefings and submissions for both the Walkerton Inquiry in Ontario and the Ontario hearings for the Romanow Commission on behalf of my employer at the time (no longer my employer) and attended both inquiries. I don’t know UK politics and so will do a bit of research on the panel and also the witnesses as part of my assessment, and then look at the Qs and As as I finish over the next day or so.
