CDU’s new blog and Catgate

By Legal Eagle

Via Club Troppo, I see that the people at CDU Law School have set up a new blog. Ken Parish has written a post for the new blog called “Catgate Unhinged“, about the propensity of politicians to spin stories about illegal immigrants/asylum seekers in a really negative way. And yes, this so-called scandal involves a cat.

As an aside, don’t you just hate the way the modern media appends the suffix “-gate” after any scandal of one kind or another? Go check out the list of scandals with the “-gate” suffix at Wikipedia. The list is enormous, and comprehends scandals which I never knew existed before this very day.

    Editors typically have no imagination and imagine the readers to have even less so they stick with the tried and true. 🙂

    It has to be an official part of the English language by now, doesn’t it?
