suspend democracy for three months so you can run a campaign, block parliamentary inquests, and still get paid
Ms Keneally conceded she had ''made a mistake'' by proroguing, or shutting down, Parliament days before Christmas. She denied it was aimed at blocking the inquiry but admitted she had underestimated public interest in the inquiry.
Last night, a spokesman for the Premier claimed it was too difficult to reverse Ms Keneally's decision on December 22 to prorogue Parliament, which the Premier insists had nothing to do with trying to shut down the power inquiry. "We cannot unprorogue Parliament. You can't," the spokesman said. "This is the best possible way of doing it. This is 100 per cent openness and transparency."
