I don't understand all the hue and cry over the F35 procurement. Everyone getting excited that these things are going to cost far more to buy than originally (and repeatedly) said. But the Auditor General caught on, and now the light of day is being shone on not only the process, but the aircraft itself. That's what oversight is supposed to do.
Now if we were looking at this 10 years from now after paying for the things, then yes this would be a scandal. Misleading parliament in order to engineer the result you want is a very serious charge. But ahead of the fact worthy of a minister taking the fall?
