Sludge Report #19
Give Us A Break - Time To Cancel Parliament
Special Notice to all Members and Staff of Parliament from C.D.Sludge,
Ordinarily Parliament does not sit in the school holidays. Next week however the powers that be have made an exception to what is, in Sludge’s opinion, a very good rule.
This morning it is also clear from Sludge’s mailbox that fed up Parliamentary staff and members wholeheartedly agree.
Sludge proposes therefore that today a petition containing the numbers of a quick poll of Scoop readers views should be sent to the Leader of the House this afernoon to express the clear displeasure of the great unwashed at this shameful turn of events.
Please send contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org for publication, and delivery, later today.
In the meantime Sludge proposes that the correct solution to this gross oversight will be for the house to convene at 2pm on Tuesday and then immediately move an adjournment debate allowing everyone to get home by tea for a change.
Readers may also wish to email their views on this to email@example.com direct.
We shall overcome.
