Bill on a Code of Ethics for the Province
The Ever Forward Conservative representative of Nova Bay South next offers his party's amendments as the honourable member from Lower Downtown Pugington whispers sweet something-or-others into the ear of his assistant.
Finally the Chair, who backbenches the Ruling Central Left Leaners, submits his own written amendments and winks his deferral to the morning's 1st coffee. Relieved laughter ricochets as the sun threatens the west-facing windows.
TWM: true, unless you consider the term "honourable" spin, which you could.
years ago i was part of a student lobby and had occasion to watch the legislature on the state level doing business. some were drinking coffee and reading the newspaper, some were chatting with others, some were clearly bored, one was nodding off.
i was not impressed.
Just a note:
As you requested, Beni, my novel, Light Over Newmarket is on its way to you in Halifax.
Ivan: Thanks, got it! complete with a beautiful scent of old cigarettes, I think. I've sent your cheque back - hope you got it.
Toast: Human beings would work just fine if it wasn't for politics.
Thanks so much for purchasing a copy of my "Light Over Newmarket."
Heh. The book was lying around the house, I smoke like a chimney, and I guess when you opened my package, it must have had on odor like smoked codfish-- with writing on it.
Poor non-smoker had to hold his nose to read my book.
Sorry old man. I should have cracked a new packing case to get a non-smelly book.
Hm. I have been told, certainly once that my first book stank! :)
