There’s one thing you can always count on government for.

I made the point recently that the ICO’s admission that a crime had been committed followed by the quick statement that it wouldn’t be followed up, due to an unusual statute of limitations looked like a scam to cover someones butt. My point was that there is always another law. In that post it turned out that the ICO was apparently the same group that told Jones et team, they could break the law in the first place. Now Lucia has an interesting post which points out the statute of limitations doesn’t appear to begin from the time when the crime was committed, but rather when the authorities became aware of it.
Check it out. FOI: Will charges be filed?
The post is based on an article by Christopher Booker here.
If they are right, and the statute of limitations hasn’t run out. Consider what that means with respect to the IOC’s honesty in their reply.
