We’re taking some time out for the holidays. Hope you are able to do the same – enjoy! Open Mike will continue, but other posting will be low volume if at all.

I’m planning to enjoy a day off today – the first “mondayised” public holiday – thanks to the work of David Clark, Grant Robertston, and others in Labour and the parties that supported the Bill. National and ACT voted against this holiday.

Mondayising win!

The Bill to Mondayise holidays seems certain to progress. A nice win for David Clark and for Labour, and an all too rare example of MMP working as it should.

The Transport and Industrial Relations Committee has reported back on David Clark’s Holidays (Full Recognition of Waitangi Day and ANZAC Day) Amendment Bill, with the National majority recommending it not be passed. The bill will now go back before the House, where its fate will be in the hands of Peter Dunne. Will he vote for it or not?

2 great Member’s Bills are before the House today.  National oppose both the Mondayising of Holidays and Paid Parental Leave, but they should have the numbers to get through their first readings.
