Just so we're clear...

The Cons' new policy is that all committee questions must be directed toward the lone group of people who can't be subpoenaed to testify. So all answers will be granted solely at the Cons' convenience.

And when cabinet ministers do deign to appear, they'll be free to answer that all decisions were made at lower levels, with the staffers responsible under strict orders not to provide any more information.

If there was any reason at all to think the opposition parties could keep a united front favouring even the most basic accountability, it should be about the easiest win possible to shut the Cons down by continuing to require that information be provided from the staffer level. But at this point, I'm not optimistic.
