Blessed news indeed!


As Mark Twain once reminded us, “No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session.”

And comes the news today that the legislature has now blessedly ended its session for the year.


What a shame so many of their agents out there in the EPA, ACC, BSA, OIO, OFLC, OTS, TPK, MoBIE, ComCom, GCSB, NZCS, NZQA, OSH, OEC, Human Wrongs Commissariat and IRD won’t also be slumbering over the break.

But Twain only pointed out the lack of safety while the legislature sits. He made no promises about its absence.
