Accountability in Office

John Howard says that his appearance at the Cole inquiry shows his government is accountable. I think Mr. Howard has confused the concept of 'accountable' with 'available to answer questions in the most obstructive fashion possible'.

I wonder if he used Jim Hacker’s interview techniques.

They are;
• If the interviewer says that lots of people want to know about a certain issue, ask him to name six. He will never be able to remember more than three.
• Attack one word in the question. For instance frequently: "What do you mean frequently?"
• Attack the interviewer: "You clearly haven't read the White Paper yourself."
• Ask a question back: "That's an interesting question. Now let me ask you a question."

All of these might not apply but they are actually really good to know.
