This is a Parliament of pretence.
Two groups on the ruling side with conflicting policies, each group with an eye on the big chair in 2019 having ditched the biggest promise of 08 Jan 2018 – abolition of the Big Chair.
Many more groups in the opposition, some recognised and some, not recognised and some knowing not what they are doing.
In a Circus, at least the various groups have a singular objective of providing entertainment to the audience.
Of course, in our Parliament, the Groups have a singular objective – enjoy luxurious lives at the cost of the taxpayer, enjoy the perks irrespective of where you sit.
This guy wearing a tie and a coat making a fool of himself. I have no words to describe the power hunger he possess. No matter what happens to this country he want to hang on until his death. Shame.
