The interviewer sat with his legs crossed, leaning slightly forwards with a expression of intense curiosity on his face. "Minister" he said "given that scientists have been unable to discover just what this big thing in the park is, is there any reason to think it is dangerous?"

The minister smiled. "Well", he said, "I'm glad you asked me that question. One thing we are certain of is that this is a perfect example of why the previous government's policies over big objects just didn't work and it is now up to us to sort out this mess. Is it a right wing object? Is it a left-wing object? Is it a centrist object? We just don't know. I am taking the highly unusual step of convening a commission to study and report back on the object within the lifetime of this administration".

"I see", interjected the interviewer. "But is there any danger here ... any danger of you actually answering my question?"

"None at all" said the minister.
