What’s going on? May 15, 2006Posted by Julian Todd in Politics.
Right, I'm completely lost now. This is as bad as when I attended a Liverpool Council Meeting and spent the time flipping through a 150 page agenda never knowing where they were. They had some guy on full time duty giving handsignals for the deaf. But someone with an overhead projector and marker pen pointing at which point in the document they were at would have been helpful to lots of people.
There's lots of fine pontification happening, but what the heck is going on? When do they start changing the Bill? I thought we were going to proceed through the different clauses one at a time, and votes would be happening, like it usually does when I read the debates on-line.
The Today in Parliament transcript is just now beginning to get on-line. Maybe the missing explanation, present on the bits of paper they're pointing at and waving around, will be excerpted into record. In another hour it might roll forward enough to cover the start of this debate.
See the comments for continued notes.
