What a lovely present

Three months after the election, here’s why Sweden won’t have a government for Christmas

Think Santa could manage that for us?

Of course, by Easter we’ll have permanently thrown off one level of government, won’t we?

  1. Let us pray that is so Tim–despite Fish Faced Treason and Tory BluLabour scummery. If not then let us all be ready to prey(sic) for what we want.

    A Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Free New Year to all except our enemies.

    To Hell with them.

  2. Aren’t Belgium once again in this blessed condition too? And then the Septics seem to be having one of their interludes as well. It really isn’t fair.

  3. As I understand it, only the Septics do this sort of thing properly: all of government, including the permanent bureaucracy, actually shuts down. Sadly, I think in places like Belgium, it’s merely the pols who are sent away on half-pay.

  4. Simply proves my point that the ministers jobs are just cushy sinecures for the PM’s mates. The bureaucrats actually run the place.

    US shutdowns are just paid vacation, that’s why they like having them in the holiday season. They get the money back as soon as the cash spigots are opened again.

    I thought the Septics had shut down non-essential jobs? Which makes you wonder why they’re there in the first place.

    It reminds me of when unions caused chaos by working to rule – who drew up such idiotic rules?

  6. It all adds to the list. Netherlands took a while to form a government last time they were allowed to vote – about 6 months if I recall correctly. Germany is almost without a government

  7. ” – chaos by working to rule – “

    Many years ago myself and a colleague formed an impromptu little union and went on a work to rule. Management was cynically exploiting a vulnerable client by eking the job out. So we upped tools and went on a go fast. Didn’t last long there but it was worth it.

  8. That’s right, Roué le Jour. U.S. shutdowns are silly shows. Yet Republicans fear them, and unDemocrats and their media partners declare the end of the world as we know it.

  9. Anti-Brexit pols are currently threatening May with Parliamentary deadlock. But the current status quo is Leave and nothing else. It takes Parliament to *do* something for the status quo to be changed, so deadlocking Parliament ensures a no-deal Brexit.
