The flies bomb

The Dom Post reports:

Parliament’s security will be reviewed after a box of flies beat its new $8 million security system and sparked a bomb scare.

The parcel, with a note inside saying it contained a bomb, was delivered to the office of Agriculture Minister David Carter on The Beehive’s fifth floor, just after 8am yesterday.

My initial assumption was that the parcel was not directed towards the Minister but was sent by one of his political advisor’s exes for the said advisor. Statistically it has to be a realistic chance.

The scare forced ministers out of the Beehive as they were preparing for their weekly Cabinet meeting – sparking impromptu meetings in cafes around town.

Prime Minister John Key and Cabinet minister Steven Joyce got on with business at a local watering hole, The Occidental, with about 15 staff.

A popular decision with the staff I am sure.
