Arrogance and ineptitude

It's not the problem that's the problem, how you deal with it is the problem.

The problem isn't that our security services hacked into the Indonesian President's personal phone, and amazingly into his wife's too. The problem is the arrogantly inept way our government is handling his complaints.

Dismissively, Abbott says "all governments gather information", and even worse, that we did it for the benefit of the Indonesians, resulting in the Indonesians recalling their ambassador, ceasing co-operating with us, and a full blown crisis.

It isn't the phone-tapping that's the cause of their fury, it's the way Abbott has handled it since it became public knowledge.

What a bunch of arrogant amateurs Abbot & Co are.
