Mungo MacCallum writes: Re. “Crikey says: the chase for Snowden is a joke ” (yesterday). This looks like a classic example of the three basic rules of politics in action. As formulated by the Australian journalist John Stubbs, these are:
Rule 1: Sooner or later everybody stuffs up.
Rule 2: Any attempt to cover up the stuff up is invariably worse than the stuff up was originally.
Rule 3: Everybody forgets Rule 2.
