In the small hours, the Greens come through for the Government

The ABC informs us that at 2am the ACT’s 2009/10 budget was passed after the Greens first agreed to help the Government limit the speaking times in the debates, and then voted with the government to get the thing over the top of the Liberals.

    Liberal MLA Vicki Dunne says the two parties are too cosy.

    “One day the Greens might learn what the job is about; scrutinising a Budget rather than snuggling up and saying ‘anything you want, tickle me again’,” she said.

Does anyone outside of the Assembly give a toss what fine words will now never be recorded in Hansard?

Cheese, Vicki?

Well she had to say something didn’t she?

Given that the Greens were going to pass the budget, regardless, then it was already a done deal.

They might as well have all had their vote on Tuesday morning.

Cheese, Vicki?

I’d only give a toss if those fine words changed anything.
