"The Prime Minister has made his views clear on this … he doesn't believe ministers should be held responsible for things they clearly have no knowledge of."

Things Amanda Vanstone clearly has no knowledge of:

1. How to run a department that doesn’t make assessments based on racist assumptions which fit all too neatly with the government’s own prejudices [or, with the prejudices they cynically fuel and exploit. Whichevs].

2. The fact that she actually should have knowledge of - even detailed knowledge of - what is happening in her department, for instance, what her department does and is doing. That is kinda almost precisely, um, her JOB. Otherwise, what is she FOR?

3. Comedy timing.
