A Productive Parliament

Jeez, talk about hitting the ground running:

"Up and coming Victorian [Liberal] Senator Mitch Fifield made sure Australia's Parliament did not forget about the plight of Gilad Shalit when it returned last week." (Senate echoes calls for Gilad Shalit's freedom, The Australian Jewish News, 8/10/10)

Now that federal parliament is back in session, it's really heartening to see our polliewaffles once again taking up the burning issues of our time. I do have one little gripe though: I'm still waiting for Mitch to report back on the results of his Yachad Scholarship trip to Israel in July 2009 "to study the role of women in the Israeli military." (See my 11/7/09 post Hot on Gillard's High Heels)

Sorry, Brian. Had to delete your comment. What you said could well be true, but until we have evidence...
