House of Commons suspended because MPs can't think of anything to talk about

And you're complaining why, James? It should be a permanent arrangement.

I saw this and thought "Great! Less chance to pass stupid legislation."

As someone once said, "That country is best governed, which is least governed."

If we could rewind all the laws passed since 1997, this country would on balance be a better place.

Can't someone just nip in there, while it's still quiet, with a few dozen barrels of gunpowd ... Ah, been tried, hasn't it? Nope, DP, we're still fucked.

I like your style, TAFS, hope you're here to stay.

We do it over here in Canada, it's referred to as a 'prorogue' of Parliament.

The current Canadian PM has suspended the legislative session for the next month or so.

I should just like to express my utter disappointment with this particular blog - when I see such an evocative headline as 'Heaven!', I am generally expecting footage of at least a bare minimum of two nubile young blondes cavorting for my entertainment..

And of the Aussie type too so there's a bit of jiggly action.

I feel cheated..

I tend to agree with the poster in the link;

Perhaps a more pertinent question is why is there a Holocaust debate? What’s to debate? It’s established fact that it happened (65 years ago), those responsible have eithe rbeen brought to justice (mostly 60 years ago) or died. Even if the debate is solely about “Holocaust memorial day”, who is going to argue that there shouldn’t be one?

Perhaps we should be asking why such a “debate” even took place while we face the things you list in your first paragraph, not why nobody wanted to speak in it…

I don't think anything can be added to that.
