The Greens are claiming victory to the ABC.
The cause of celebration is approval for their plan to put the assembly to work sitting at night (when the community can get along), and for an extra week.
Zed’s not happy, he wanted more sitting days rather than longer hours. Each sitting day brings a question time in which to chest up to “The Chief”. He put out a media release on 9 December expressing his disgust. Zed should consider that he doesn’t need a sitting day to do the main work of opposition (researching issues, developing policy, starting public debate).
Simon Corbell on the other hand is unhappy about what he sees as four extra weeks work of sitting hours and would like all the work he does when out of the chamber to be considered.
