Hints of final session


Share post:

Yesterday’s SittinG of the House of Assembly bore more than subtle hints that it was the end of the line for the current session of Parliament.
To anyone in tune with current political vibes, there were some humorous indications of an end to this session of Parliament and the imminent announcement of the date for the general election.
Early in the afternoon as Government business for the day was completed, Leader of Government Business and Member of Parliament (MP) for Christ Church South John Boyce addressed the Chair: “Mr Speaker I beg to move that this House be adjourned until Tuesday . . . .”
Here there was a long pause, Boyce appearing lost for the date of that Tuesday, while his colleagues erupted in laughter, throwing dates at him wildly.
Then the Speaker suggested “check your cellphone”, provoking more laughter from the parliamentarians.
