Am I the Only One ?

Do you get this?

The PC Government want to prorogue Parliament till March.  They've just had their Christmas break.  And now the people we pay big salaries to are told to stay home till March?  So that Stephen Harper can load the Senate?  So that the government bills that might be defeated will be shelved?

I don't really care about the politics right now.  But who the hell is running the country for the next three months?  We are paying parliamentarians to work but Harper is giving them a paid holiday ... a holiday paid by you and me.

The only bright side of that is that my friend and neighbour spends more time up here when Parliament is not in session.

But honestly, I really don't get it at all.

Do you?

This makes me so angry I could spit. Angry cat type spitting. The last thing we need at a time like this is an idling government.

The business of government ... that done by the bureaucrats ... will of course be proceeding ... but it is Harper's "let's just remove the battlefield" attitude toward democratic debate and the transparency made possible by opposing views that infuriates me. When history is written Harper will not show up well.
