Pallot, J and S. Newberry, S. 2004. “Every Trick in the Book to Rush Bill Through.”
The Independent May 26: 8.
Two common techniques, called Razzle Dazzle and Delayed Buck, are often used together. Razzle Dazzle involves swamping potential opponents with voluminous data. Delayed Buck involves late submission of information so that it cannot be considered in time.
The 348 pages of the bill are complex, tedious and indigestible. The public finance sections of the Bill were a late addition. The Bill was tabled in December, running into the pre-Christmas rush....
Yet another ploy is Call It a Rose. In commenting on the Bill, ACT’s Rodney Hide described it as “a classic politicians’ bill which achieves the opposite of what it says it will”.
In the first reading of the Bill, Margaret Wilson, on behalf of Dr Cullen, stated that it would provide greater transparency and accountability.
The Bill allows the Executive to withhold information from Parliament (Clause 17, S 45E), creates regulations that do not have to be published (Clause 24, S80 and 80A; Clauses 205, 212, 213) and replaces the familiar and well-understood Estimates with unnamed documents of potentially inconsistent format (Clause 8, S26I).

...Over dinner at our house, which looks out across the Pentland Hills, June gave an account of how to design buildings in different settings and climates. The depth of her knowledge perplexed me – until she pointed out she was once an architect. And then I realised why she had a fascination for, and understanding for, public sector assets. From a unique inter-disciplinary perspective – from architect to accountant.
In September 2001, June Pallot received further recognition for her burgeoning research and her involvement with colleagues at Edinburgh University when she was appointed as a Visiting Professor of Accounting at Edinburg
