Jumping over the candlestick...

The recent announcements about the resurrection of the infamous Flying Squad unit, despite vehement denials by those in authority, require an explanation.

Here are a few plausible reasons that can be given:

1. This is a matter of national security.

2. Certain security plans can not be revealed for obvious reasons.

3. The matter is under inves tigation, so it is premature to make any pronounce- ments.

4. No comment.

5. This information is on a need-to-know basis.

6. All will be revealed in the fullness of time.

7. It wasn't me.

8. It was done without my knowledge.

9. People just jealous.

10. It's a lie.

Take your pick; one is as good as the other to "jump over the candlestick".
