ONE : MOTION 103 TO BE VOTED ON TOMORROW–ANTI EVERY RElIGION BESIDES ISLAM
TWO: $ 125,000 CHRISTMAS VACATION –THE PRINCELING”S BILL
THREE: PROPOSALS TO HAVE NO FRIDAY SITTING OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS
FOUR: : PROPOSALS TO SEE THAT PM ONLY HAS TO BE IN QUESTION PERIOD ONE DAY A WEEK
There you have it.
I was no sooner finished writing a short piece on the budget that is to be brought down today than I was confronted with the news listed above.
I have written about Motion 103 already . This is just to point out that those who thought this would not go anywhere are wrong The Government is serious about giving special attention to studying discrimination against Islam over all other religious discrimination. The vote is tomorrow and short of any amendments the Government might offer, which at this point seems unlikely, the motion will go through as proposed . This is an affront to all those who believe in equal treatment and that all religious discrimination should be examined equally.
And if jumping a free ride on his friend’s helicopter in the Caribbean wasn’t enough this past Christmas , our Princeling has now stuck us with the rest of the Christmas bill—-$125,000. Of course , when you promise deficits and exceed them by three hundred per cent what ‘s a hundred thousand dollars and change.
THREE AND FOUR:
If this wasn’t enough to spoil your week , the Princeling ‘s Party is pushing proposals before the House Affairs and Proceedure Committee of the House of Commons to , among other things:
See to it that our overworked PM only has to face question period in the House one day a week.
And to see to it that our overworked MP’s do not have a House of Commons sitting on Fridays.
Does not your disgust cup runneth over?
One of the fundamental characteristics and requirements of the British Parliamentary System is that the Prime Minister and Cabinet sit in the Peoples’s House –The House of Commons . Now , if these proposals go through the Leader of the Government will not be required to face the opposition and answer questions but one day a week when the House is in session.
If this is not a dimunition of responsible government I do not know what is!
Secondly, guess how the Government is spinning the Friday closing. A family friendly action for MP’s with kids!
Is this not the most galling , contemptible thing you ever heard ? Using the kids to justify time off.
On a Friday when school aged kids will be in school and many other spouses , who are unlucky enough to not be a part of the House of Commons , will be working? Family Friendly?
What have we done to deserve this craziness ?
