Is it nation time yet? Afraid not, it's still party time. That's why there isn't a whisper of a government being formed. And that's why we're hearing rhetoric and cant - a lot of self-serving blather - about party difficulties and grassroots resistance.

Enough already. Just do it. Form a government.

People didn't cast their votes for a hiatus. For week after week of jockeying for an edge over political rivals. For week after week of apparent soul-searching about ideological differences which are all but invisible to the naked eye.
