Lazy-islators?If the hard work involved in soliciting votes and soaping up the party leadership are among the reasons why politics isn't a favourable choice for procrastinators like me, in contrast the much easier task of attending Parliament or Assembly is very appealing. If only I could walk into work at 11:00 a.m., then pretend to be miffed by an email or disagree vehemently with a colleague (mutually) and walk out of the place. To the canteen for a nice bite of lunch (with the same colleague) and back to the office-owned house or guesthouse with all amenities. And full pay. If only.
If anyone doubted their intellect, please reconsider. The mere fact that Parliament gets called off more and more early each day proves that politicians are evolving and getting it better each year. I wonder how long it will take them to figure out that throwing just one stick of furniture might cause more melee that could result in more days off than they can do currently.
