The Foreign Minister-outside-Cabinet may be doing his job 

Regular readers know that I have been less than charitable about the Foreign Minister-outside-Cabinet, because I am not convinced he knows what is job is or how to do it, nor am I convinced that he resides in the same dimension or linear time.
   Some of that arises from his ridiculous behaviour during his meeting with Sen. John McCain in mid-2006. And some arose from the story of , a in a Katowice jail. His parents told TV One that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade was not doing enough, and the Minister himself said he would not involve himself in the sovereign affairs of other nations.
   That made me question why we even need a Foreign Minister.
   However, in the interests of being fair and balanced, the Foreign Minister has said that his staff were working tirelessly on the Robinson case.
   It is worth linking this report in the Irish , The New Zealand Herald.
   I recall at least one story in 2003 which the Herald fictionalized (or got totally wrong, depending on how generous you are), and its advertising department has failed to place our creatives in the promised position 100 per cent of the time. Forgive me if I have to question the paper’s veracity. If one department cannot keep its word, and another errs, then I can’t help it.
   Therefore, I have written to the Embassy in to see if they can enlighten me on the Consul’s progress, to see if the Foreign Minister’s claims are true. More updates as I uncover them, as right now I can’t understand why his parents reckoned the Ministry had done too little, or why Mr Robinson can’t be bailed, or jailed here under law.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
