The phrase encapsulates the unpredictability of life as Prime Minister.
Yesterday, David Cameron experienced an "event" in the form of this question from Sir Peter Tapsell:
Sir Peter Tapsell (Louth and Horncastle) (Con): Now that there is to be a full investigation into the abduction or murder of Madeleine McCann, is there not a much stronger case for a full investigation into the suicide or murder of Dr David Kelly?
The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend is raising two issues. First, on the issue of Madeleine McCann, it is welcome that the Metropolitan police has decided to review the case and the paperwork. On the issue of Dr David Kelly, I thought the results of the inquest that was carried out and the report into it were fairly clear, and I do not think it is necessary to take that case forward.
Mr. Cameron asserts that the report is "fairly clear".
Where, Mr. Cameron, in the Hutton Report is it "fairly clear" about the absence of fingerprints on the knife found at Harrowdown Hill? That important evidence was withheld or suppressed at the Hutton Inquiry.
Where is it "fairly clear" how David Kelly (supposedly) held the knife without leaving fingerprints?
Mr. Cameron, you were bullshitting in the House of Commons yesterday. You were the bluffer.
And yesterday may yet prove to be an "event" in the search for justice for David Kelly.
