Scoop Feedback: PM Doone SSTs Debate

Scoop Feedback: PM Doone SSTs Debate

Read Fran O'Sullivan in the Herald's Business section this morning and ponder how much of this case now ressts on the importance of future action by Fairfax to recover from INL potential costs inadequately represented by INL at the time of sale of its assets to Fairfax.

Ponder also the compounding and interlocking influence of Australian ownership on media, business and finance in New Zealand - and the Aussie rules they play by. Presumaby Robin Doone is doing most of the talking because her current husband signed a confidentiality agreement which does not bind her.

There are more questions than headline coverage is answering.
