The conservative federal government is embarrassed currently by a UN-prompted enquiry into massive corruption in Australian wheat sales to Iraq right up to the start of the war. Yesterday the Foreign Affairs Minister Downer was forced to appear before the enquiry and fled afterwards avoiding the media. Panorama.  His official car became jammed in traffic shortly after the scene shown here, and some of the photographers (including myself) pursued the vehicle down the middle of the road on foot. A peculiar incident for the peak hour CBD crowds to witness no doubt. Here is a shot of Prime Minister Howard arriving to give testimony a couple of days later.
