My God, Liarbour is really scraping the barrel in the excuses department.
Annette King blaming a raft of killings on the full moon and hot weather really takes the biscuit.
Has Liarbour run out of spin doctors? Couldn't they come up with something better.
I bet dear Leader got the choice excuse, blaiming violent crime on the Mother of All Budgets.
Well, I suppose if it was pissing down the crims might stop in.
I must check the UK figures for January 2008 and July 2007 to see if this excuse cuts mustard.
And I guess a full moon does help people see better?
But really, Has Liarbour made us all so ill, we are turning into werewolves?
As for the ten killings being just ' a blip' , I guess Dear Leader has the same view of National's poll ratings.
UPDATE: Simon Power says Annette King is in denial over crime.
