MS Comment:  ‘The motion for the government to commission a cumulative impact assessment has been passed – resoundingly – after the debate. Admittedly very few people attended but the result was what the 104,000 people who signed the ‘WoW’ petition wanted.’

Comment from Top Paddock:  ‘Yeah, I thought the idea of second homes was so they could attend Parliment more convieniantly and regularly? But of course not. In any other job, if someone doesn’t show up for work they are FIRED.’
