David Clark From Zero To Hero - Mondayising Holidays Now Has A Prospect Of Becoming Law


First Term MP David Clark has held his first standup with press gallery this morning following the drawing of his bill to Mondayise Waitangi Day and ANZAC Day holidays from the members bill ballot last week.

While the PM has gone a little colder on the idea than he appeared to be on Waitangi Day the bill may nevertheless have a good chance of being passed by the Opposition with the support of United Future Party Leader and Revenue Minister Peter Dunne.

(NOTE:It is something of a novelty for a first time MP to get so much media attention in their first two sitting weeks of Parliament - David Clark took over the bill from Labour Party Deputy Leader Grant Robertson.)

On The Sepp Blatter Resignation

Any initial elation at Sepp Blatter’s resignation as the overlord of FIFA will be tempered by his declared intention to stay on until at least December and possibly March 2016, to enable his successor to be elected. Has FIFA got no existing succession plan that could kick in before this? More>>
