In what has almost become a national sport, Parliament played its part in blocking roads over the last two days, meeting to pass a confidence vote on the new Cabinet's policy statement, an outcome no one was surprised by.While many of the members of the new government may have the best intentions, the contents of the policy statement are unnecessarily and characteristically grandiose.Now that the theatrics of the last few days are over, perhaps the government can get to work on these issues.
