  • Madeleine,

    "Watch out parents of kids with autism - they will be open to prosecution if their kids can't cope with all the stress of school and refuse to go."

    This one bothered me too, I have a child with Aspergers syndrome and it is often necessary to pull him from school for reasons like the above, to homeschool him for a week or few days and then get him back in.

    Further to the ETS, judging by question time it appears they're not putting on hold or suspending anything.

    Forestry continues as expected and everything else is supposed to be ready for Jan 2010.

    Though if it was me, I'd be leery of those forest credits.

    Judging by Question Time, I would expect the Prime Minister to hold a firm opinion about climate change, until the weather changes.

    But well done to Jeanette Fitzsimons for flushing him out.

    I don't think they'd be that stupid.

    Just in case this government thinks it is setting some kind of record in passing bills it should be noted that the Indian government recently (23rd Dec 2008) was credited with passing 8 bills in 17 minutes, even whilst, "some Congress MPs were seen hurling their underwear at the BJP MPs while ululating furiously".. Well, actually, the reporter was moved to add that to the report given what else was going in the house at the time.
