Letters to the Editor

Congratulations and thanks again to Tim and the Coast for an amazingly thorough job on the reporting of the Commonwealth Games story.

The final pieces missing from the original accounting are now quite clear.

The level of detailed story telling provided, linked to sagacious supporting material and ample indication that every side and person directly involved was given an opportunity to state their view is brilliant.

It now appears that everything a citizen would need to know about this story to make an informed opinion is in the public record.

A year after the fact it is clear that no one will be held accountable and those most involved have already moved on to bigger and better schemes to which you have drawn clear links, but at least come election time we will have all the facts in front of us and that is all we could possibly ask of the media.

Thank you for an extraordinary piece of work.
