The ongoing saga, and at present all we can hope for is that it goes on, of Taito Philip Field continues to really underscore what a complete crock all that occurs in the Beehive really is. Far from me to suggest that an ex Labour Cabinet Minister has any hint of bias when making her decisions as speaker, but her very narrow interpretation of what has occured has hardly let the Headmistress down. Ms Wilson is unfortunately one of the few people in the house who is not terminally stupid and I long ago identified her as one of the most dangerous women in the land. Her elevation to the big comfy chair had me worried when it ocurred and that particular pigeon has just come home to roost. What the government wants is to be able to tough all this out for a few days and let the proles forget all about it just as they have done in the past on numerous occasions. All the opposition seems to have left to is to refer the matter to increasingly obscure and toothless other bodies to try and give the former MP his time on the spit he so richly deserves. I'm willing to wager, however, that they will fail as Uncle Helen is exceedingly good at heading this sort of thing off at the pass.
There is a bloke of whom I've not heard, who chips away yet again at the global warming bollocks. Good on him but he is also fighting the Government perceived wisdom and we have already seen even this morning what a thankless task that is. But we musn't give up, must we, because that is what the toads want. Anyway this bloke points out the absurdity of the fact the same people who were confidently predicting the coming of the next Ice Age in the 1970s are now those who are having us all going to our doom on the back of global warming. His main point, well made, though is that all the science the environmental zealots are spending my money on is so flakey that it is not worth the recycled paper it is written on. On an earlier page Augie's mob are lobbying for a Royal Commission of Enquiry into the validity (or more correctly not) of the science. Unfortunately they have as much chance of success as the Nats have of getting Taito Philip Field's head on a plate.
