Holy Grail on Thursdays Now?

By che - 20 December 2007 11

The CT has this story on the new Rudd government
declaring that they will have the House of Reps sitting Monday to
Friday.

So you should now see all your MP’s and staffers hanging out at
the Holy Grail on Thursday nights instead of Wednesday.

You’ll also no longer be able to get a flights out from Canberra on Friday nights and
the Qantas club will be chockas.

What’s Your opinion?

It is refreshing to see a new government getting stuck into the things they said they’d do. I guess we got so used to Mr Howard qualifying everything, using his weasel words and lawyer language to make excuses and stall and conceal what he was really up to.

I hope they calm down a bit or there’s going to be some burned-out people, but I do like the way they are doing exactly what they said they’d do.

The pace will only keep up until the millionaaire jesus boy realises that that the timeframes for various policies they have suggested are inplausible, if not impossible.

Yeah, it’s exciting but scary at the same time. I know a few people working at a pace that just isn’t sustainable. It’s the holidays for god sake. Balance dude.

Once the initial “Isn’t Mr Sheen as PM wonderful?” honeymoon swoons are over, what are the current odds at for Departmental\Ministerial scandals and associated timeframes?

Shining twice as bright only tends to do so for half as long before seeing a ‘burn out’ or return to mean…

I think it’s great! More work being done, more civilised hours, less cost to the taxpayer – so you have to book your flights ahead. Small price to pay, I reckon.

In passing, I have to say I’m impressed with the energy level of this new government. Talk about pep – I’ve seen more action in the last three weeks than in than in the entire term of the last lot! I’ll be even more impressed if they can keep the pace up.

Spam it is. Note the misspelling, all caps, and irrelevance to the topic.
