Do you really think the Senators will know what questions they should be asking? And do you really think they will be able to see through the brown stuff Health will throw at them. And do you really think the Senators will recognise the brown stuff for what it is?

Just don't get your hopes up too far.

Quite frankly I have had enough of Senate Estimates' attempts at uncovering the incompetence and flagrant waste of taxpayers money relating to eHealth. This area is far and away too complex for any Senator to grasp in any meaningful way. Five years of reading the Department Secretary's meaningless waffle and obfuscation proves her to be a master of the art. The Senator's are wasting their time and there is absolutely nothing they can do about it.
