Timing of the LLU decision press release

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Uncle StoatWarbler, Dec 26, 2003.

  1. I hope I'm not te only one aware that the timing of the release is quite
    deliberate:

    Most media/journos are on holiday and the story will be well & truley dead
    by the time the business press come back.


    At least that's the hope.


    Anything bad released just before Budget day or Xmas vacation is being
    done so in the hope that it will be utterly buried by the time anyone
    important is paying attention.

    Obligatory stupid question: what is the LLU ?
