Two weeks holiday

Time once again to pull out our Mark Twain and meditate on the joyful fortnight ahead of us: "No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session."

Which means that with junkets, jaunts and assorted revels overseas on offer, NZ's parliamentarians are leaving in droves to make the most of their two weeks away from the House -- which means that for two weeks we'll be relatively free of their moronic intrusions into our life.

Thank goodness.

It would be worth paying their salaries and expenses just to keep them away for much longer.
