Sworn in

Parliament has been sworn in (with Su'a William Sio swearing first in Samoan, then English), and Lockwood Smith has been elected Speaker and dragged to the chair. Tomorrow we have the official state opening and speech from the throne, then Parliament can finally get down to business. It will be very interesting to see what bills the government decides to reinstate, and what it puts up in its urgency motion.
