House Sitting Days This Month

Have a look at the above calender and weep.

What do we pay these numpties for? No wonder they will say anything to get our votes to stay there. At least electorate MP’s have electorate business to conduct back in their electorates. But all the rest, what do they do?

I defy anyone to say we are well served by our parliament.

We NOW have a part time Government AND a part time Parliament.

  1. She’s been given a light workload and protected to stop her spinning out of control and Labour crashing and burning. Who do they have to replace her is the question? Oh, it’s going to be interesting watching her on the campagin trail.

  2. I have been told that there is so little new legislation in the pipeline at the moment that our MP’s are rapidly processing bills left over from the last parliament.

    The government is also slowing the house down by engaging in countless unproductive calls on legislation that should be a slam-dunk, just to consume time.

    No wonder Princess is away on the government launch, and continuing the charm offensive away from our cold wet winter – there’s really bugger all for her to talk about here !

    • Yeah but surely when all the working groups report back SOON?, there will be 100’s of bill going forward to support their findings and recommendations.
      Don’t laugh, that’s what they were set up for isn’t it?

      • Can they afford to do anything about the 200 working groups?
        I think that they will have a hard job paying that bill. It must be in the millions.
        Wellington will be like a desert when the working groups finish. Tumble weeds in the street!

      • Don’t forget that the opposition started out strongly on the first day of this Parliament term that had Hipkins on his knees. The result was a better balance in select committees resulting in the COL moving to plan B. Then it was revealed there was no real plan A as the advisory groups quickly reached over 200 after being told the “real” coalition agreement was contained in a 38 page secret document.
        Obviously after 9 long years of seat polishing they are struggling to develop any real work habits as increasing amounts of legislation has to be under urgency. In a way this justifies the loose calendar as more recovery is required after so many long sitting days stretching into the small hours.
        More unsettling is the COL ignoring the established protocols as well as processes by trying to compress the select committee stages. Even ignoring it all completely with a Captains Call conveniently timed for the SLG to take to another junket for her self promotion. Feather cloak and all.

  3. Think that is bad, have a look at Australian Parliament, back September 9.
    Called winter break. Then there is Christmas break that is as long.

    Difference in two I can see is very hard for politician to miss a sitting in Australia as they have to get a pair for voting.
    Be interesting to see how many absent days Scomo has up against Jacinda?
    I guess it is pointless having more sitting time if the key players choose not to attend.

  4. No sitting in the House on Thursdays any longer. In October they sit for only 6 days out of the whole month.
    Any functioning business would restructure and severely cut the number of staff and hours they employ staff or go out of business. Cut MPs salaries accordingly. No wonder Cindy and co have no idea about the real world.

  5. But they also to have go on select committees.
    I’m more concerned about our part time prime minister.
    But i’m in two minds.
    Part of me says good the voters will see how little she is doing for them.
    The other part says damn, I like seeing her squirm in Parliament, but now all she does is shout and then sit down in a hissy fit.
