FROM SUBLIME TO RIDICULOUS
Took the tadpoles out this morning before the temperatures rose to build a snowfrog and an ig (like an eskimo's home but without a loo).
This afternoon we had to suffer the embarrassing spectacle of the Presentation of the New Government. Yes, democracy is a great thing and there's nothing wrong with effective opposition, but there is also such a thing as decorum and respectable behaviour. Interrupting and jeering as the PM presents the list of new ministers is hardly a way of showing respect for the democratic process. Moreover, it doesn't make for effective opposition; it makes the opposition look like a bunch of nursery school children who dream of being football hooligans when they grow up.
I think I'll stick to the ig next time.
