It is so typical of new governments, management, relationships, to start off by wanting to clear the decks of the old, bad, ways and demonstrate to the world that things can be done better, in a more open way.
Then, the first compromise is made, and it is completely justifiable, however,in doing so the government, etc, has to stray just a little from the principles it was established on. Then it happens again, perhaps a little further and deeper, then a little more. Then the press find out about the first transgression. We all know what happens next, and before you know it they've been in power for two or three terms and they are starting to get just a little on the nose.
Then, the cycle starts all over again, and again.
