I notice my last post was on the whimsical side. I could easily write in a similar vein today but the subject is a lot more serious.
Parliament has started discussing a Private Member's Bill giving airports permission to manage their own lost luggage problems. This popped out of the Parliamentary ballot box recently. But David Seymour's Voluntary Euthanasia bill languishes there, perhaps for ever. Well, that's how the system works.
But it seems in bad taste for a grinning Prime Minister to be reported saying that his caucus supports the lost luggage bill. But I guess any old bill would do to fill up some debating time and to keep V E off the agenda.
Yes, it could be whimsical. But for many of us it's darn serious.
