Clark expresses confidence in SFO

Well, partly.
The Prime Minister said the issue was that Mr Liddell had not sought Crown Law's advice "which would be the normal course".

I wonder why advice is required from that office. Another government department under direct 9th floor control? No doubt the office would have issued some weasel legalese opinion that could be used it as the excuse to ignore any eventual finding from the SFO.

It's the omissions in the confidence statement and the fact she took so long to express that confidence that is not good. And why does she have to speak for her 2IC? Has he suddenly lost his voice? After all he is the responsible Minister.
