Bateau Bay Men's Shed at NSW Parliament

An attempted coup was on the minds of the 15 men who ascended on State Parliament today but following the hospitality of Chris Spence and Chris Harcher, our Local Members, we decided to simply accept their offers of good will and went on to enjoy ourselves. Morning tea in the Speakers Garden, an explanation of the history of the building and it's significance in the English speaking world was followed by a few jokes and a tour of parts of the magnificent building.
And then on to Question Time where we were formally welcomed by the Speaker of the House. Having heard the House called a "Bear Pit" we were not disappointed and spent a very enlightening hour listening to, and watching, the exchanges between both sides of politics.
Many thanks to Chris Spence for inviting us and for spending time hosting our visit.
