The Christmas- New Year “silly season” in Australia: endless summer holidays; the beach; catching up with friends and relatives; the Aussie Open tennis …. nothing much by the way of routine stuff getting done; politicians and the law taking a break from disjunctive activity; newspapers becoming thinner.

I like it.

Things seem to start working better.

‘Taint silly at all.

But now it’s back to the grind: the fight to get yourself and your family somewhere; the competition between local government, the states and feds and their public bodies to find funding for necessary infrastructure, health, safety and education; the misdirected fight with labour and capital at each other’s throats whilst the big rent-seekers continue to rob them both blind.

I reckon it’s the rest of the year that’s the silly season.
