There's probably an obvious answer that's eluding me - but just why does Parliament go on holiday whenever the schools do?
Christmas, Easter, Summer and most strangely of all - half terms?
This isn't one of those 'why don't they all work a bit harder' rants. I'm not in any way suggesting that when Parliament isn't sitting that all our MPs are kicking back and going on holiday to Barbados. I know that's not true.
But it is weird that Parliament revolves around when the schools are on holiday, unlike any other area of public life or business I can think of. Imagine if the courts decided to do the same?
So - how come on then? Would love to know the 'logic' behind it...
