American Mid Term Elections
Posted Wednesday, 8 November 2006 at 12:02

I thought the result would be closer, but it appears that the Democrats have swept in with convincing style. Stayed up until 1.30am to watch the first precincts come in, hanging on for Virginia which would have been a good indicator as to what was happening elsewhere – but fell fast asleep.

Prorogation has begun – I didn’t know what it was either.

Prorogation – noun - to discontinue the meeting of Parliament without it being dissolved.

Apparently it didn’t happen last year because of the general election and I have apparently just ended my first official sitting of parliament. The next one begins with the Queen’s speech.

No one told me. I have continued to book meetings and have made no contingency whatsoever for the fact that we now have a parliamentary ‘half term’. I won’t make that mistake again!
