Ms Frampton, it is the job of the Opposition to criticize the government's agenda, proposed legislation and so forth. That is not opposing for the sake of opposing as you suggest The purpose is to seek improvements in legislation, proposals for spending, etc. Unfortunately, many people, including governments and their supporters, take it too personally. I agree that the House is crucial and also that the way it does business is way oversue for some major overhauling. Keeping it closed will not achieve any of these kinds objectives nor give the Oppositon any opportunity to propose changes. The media, yourself included, are doing too much tiptoeing around this issue right now. This decision deserves sharp criticism and you folks need to be leading the way.
