Big queue

The queue for seats in the Public Gallery for Question Time today was one of the longest I've seen. At least 50 people waited to be let in to see the entertainments.

Finally got in around 2:45, just in time to catch the end of Rodney's question. It's the first time I've seen Margaret Wilson as Speaker and was surprised at how badly the House was run. And that voice! Like nails on a blackboard.

A bloody funny Question Time all round. It really is a shame that the government has put off the installation of parliamentary TV. Oh well, maybe when they can find the money for it...
