Zombie Member's Day VI

It's Member's Day, and the saga of Heather Roy's Education (Freedom of Association) Amendment Bill still drags on. Labour is filibustering the bill, by talking out private and local bills which appear before it on the Order Paper, in an effort to push the vote out beyond the election, in the hope of the bill falling off the Order Paper if ACT falls out of Parliament, or of the election removing the current majority in its favour. And it looks like they'll be successful. This means that our member's days are boring - but it means we don't get VSM yet.
